CAMP MINDEN, LA -  Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal personnel from Fort Hood, Texas  conducted a burn of 85,000 pounds of Clean Burning Ignitor (CBI) and 40,000 pounds of M6 propellant stored in a magazine this week at Louisiana National Guard's Camp Minden in Webster Parish.   The burn was to dispose of unstable material that remained after an auto-ignition caused an explosion at the site in late September.  The remaining material is to be disposed of in a sealed-burning chamber currently in operation at the site.
