5.5M Pounds of Explosive Moved at North La. Site

State police say that just over 5.5 million pounds of explosive propellant has been moved at the northwestern Louisiana industrial site where it was found to be improperly stored several weeks ago.

On Thursday, crews moved about 93,600 pounds of the material, bringing the total safely moved and stored to around 5.5 million. Officials estimated that roughly 6 million pounds was found at the site of an explosives recycler at Camp Minden in Webster Parish.

The effort was set to resume Friday morning.
