In 2012, an explosion occurred at the Explo Systems, Inc. operations within Camp Minden. The Louisiana State Police responded and discovered large quantities of explosive and propellant materials improperly stored at Camp Minden. The Louisiana State Police immediately ordered Explo Systems, Inc. to store materials providing protection from the weather (heat, rain, cold) conditions. Weather conditions have a direct impact on the stabilizer used in explosives and propellants, and cause the stabilizer to deteriorate. Read more about Camp Minden.
