An unfounded bomb threat prompted the Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier to close for several hours Thursday.
The call of the threat came in at 12:35 p.m., and deputies responded to the pier at 200 NE 21st Avenue, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.
Deputies later found the threat was unfounded and cleared the area before 4 p.m.
The public was asked to stay out of the area as deputies investigated.
