Louisiana can't find anyone to take explosives
BATON ROUGE - The head of the Louisiana State Police's explosives unit says the state is having a hard time finding a way to unload 10 million pounds of improperly stored material at an explosives recycling company in northwest Louisiana.
The state appears to be stuck with the military propellant, because no company or facility has agreed to take the material.
In November, authorities discovered the M6 propellant improperly stored at Explo Systems' facility at Camp Minden, a Louisiana National Guard base east of Shreveport.
The nearby town of Doyline was evacuated for a week in December because of concerns that any ignition could set off a massive chain-reaction blast.
