April 22, 2013|By Tony Perry

A beach in San Diego County was open Monday after a military explosive found there led to a two-hour evacuation of the area, officials said.

The undetermined type of explosive was found Sunday on Cardiff State Beach, leading to the evacuation of a stretch of the beach, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said.

A beachgoer at the northern San Diego County site found the explosive and took it to lifeguards, who called sheriff's deputies.

The arson-bomb squad removed the explosive for disposal, and the beach was reopened, officials said.
