KENT, Conn. (WTNH) — Kent Falls State Park has reopened after the discovery of what Connecticut State Police called a “suspicious device” prompted its closure on Sunday morning.

According to police, at approximately 10:00 a.m., troopers and bomb squad units joined Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) officers to deal with the device.

The device, which turned out to be a camp grill with visible wires, has been deemed “non-hazardous” by officials and the park is preparing to reopen.

It is unknown if police have any suspects at this time.
