If you heard any loud booming noises earlier today in southwest Mississauga, you’ll be relieved to know it was a relatively minor incident.

Peel police say a large flare was located today in the area of Lakeshore Rd W and Winston Churchill Blvd.

PRP’s Explosive Disposal Unit (EDU) was called to the scene in order to detonate it.

“So if you heard loud booms, that is what it was all about,” said police.

No injuries were reported and there’s no public safety concern at this time.
