The Massachusetts State Hazmat Team and State Police Bomb Squad were called to Marion Friday morning, after the Marion Fire Department received a report of a suspicious device in the road.

Sippican Week reports the call came in just after 9 a.m., of a suspicious device in the middle of Pumping House Road, sitting on top of a water valve cover.

Firefighters closed off the street and the area, and spotted the device through binoculars. It appeared to be a soda can with two lit cigarettes sticking out of the top. Fire officials called in the state investigators, who determined there was no threat.

The investigation remains ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to contact Marion Police.
