CAMP MINDEN, LA (KSLA) -

Officials are still working to finalize a plan and timeline for the disposal of "clean burning ignitor" (CBI) at Camp Minden.

More than 120,000 pounds of CBI auto-ignited inside a bunker at Camp Minden last month.

At a town hall meeting last week, Army officials suggested the CBI be destroyed in place in a quick burning of the CBI in 3 bunkers over the next 2 weeks at the Webster Parish compound.

The first is scheduled to take place between Oct. 17-20 with the other two following on Oct. 22 and Oct. 29. The quick burn Oct. 29 also is expected to include 40,000 pounds of M6 artillery propellant. 

Officials are expected to alert us ahead of the first ignition.
