La. suspends explosives license
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana authorities have suspended the explosives licenses of a company accused of improperly storing millions of pounds of a military propellant in Louisiana.
Louisiana State Police spokesman Julie Lewis says Explo System's state explosives licenses will remain in revocation pending civil and criminal investigations.
Explo Systems had a multimillion-dollar military contract to dismantle military propellant charges.
The company was blamed for the evacuation of Doyline, La., last year when millions of pounds of a propellant called M6 was discovered haphazardly stored, some of in boxes outside at Camp Minden, a Louisiana National Guard base.
