CAMP LEJEUNE, NC (AP) — Officials at the Camp Lejeune are warning nearby residents that they might hear periodic explosions as unexploded ordnance is destroyed.

Marine Corps spokesman Nat Fahy says the explosions are scheduled for Thursday between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. near the training area of Camp Geiger and its old entrance gate off US 17. There will be explosions on Friday and Saturday during the same time frame near the F-5 range off NC 24 east of Piney Green Road.

Fahey says Marines are blowing up mostly old rifle and rocket grenades or mortar rounds used on the training ranges. The spokesman says many are training or inert rounds, but some could be high-explosive, so they are all being safely detonated before planned construction in the area.
