DOYLINE, La. (AP) — Authorities say it could take up to three weeks to finish moving military propellant into storage at an explosives recycling company that caused the evacuation of a Louisiana town.
The town of Doyline was evacuated earlier this month after authorities said they found 6 million pounds of the material improperly stored at Explo Systems Inc.
Explo contracts with the military to demilitarize explosives and other materials.
The company rents space at a National Guard base in north Louisiana.
The material found improperly stored on the base is called M6 and is used as a propellant for artillery rounds.
Louisiana State Police spokesman Matt Harris says Wednesday that crews have moved 4.6 million pounds of product into proper storage sites.
A criminal investigation is ongoing.
