Explosion at Camp Minden

An explosion at a Camp Minden plant early today reportedly injured at least one person. Most Minden residents felt their homes shake around 6:20 a.m., when the explosion reportedly occurred at Goex.

According to Col. Carl Thompson, Camp Minden’s Public Affairs Officer, the explosion occurred in section G of Camp Minden inside Goex’s manufacturing facility and not in one of their bunkers (housed in section L) that store the black powder. Only section G was evacuated and a command post has been established by first responders.
