Mile And A Half High Mushroom Cloud Near Camp Minden Louisiana Dixie Underground "Bunker Explosion"

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Some sort of an explosion or something sent a plume of smoke 7000 feet into the air. This happened in Louisiana near Camp Minden on Monday night around 11:30pm. Multiple witnesses apparently reported that they saw something falling down from the sky towards the earth before the mushroom cloud was created.

According to the Shreveport Times, “ the source was traced to a more earthly cause — a bunker loaded with explosives and leased by Explo Systems Inc. exploded in the L-1 area toward the central eastern part of Camp Minden.

The Shreveport Times  also reports in an update that  ”state police hazardous materials unit has completed its on-site investigation and the findings have been turned over to headquarters in Baton Rouge for further review. Troop G spokesman Matt Harris is uncertain when the results will be released publicly.”

The outcome of the investigation will dictate any enforcement action. “We won’t know what violations, if any, until it’s all completed,” Harris said. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also is involved in the probe. Meanwhile, the blast site has been turned over to Camp Minden officials for cleanup, which is under way.”

The facility, formerly the Louisiana Army Ammunition Plant, consists has bunkers scattered throughout its predominantly wooded 15,000 acres.” Get the lastest Shreveport Times report here 


Explo Systems is a 7-year old, veteran-owned small business located on the former Louisiana Army Ammunition Plant (LAAP). Explo’s management has been demilitarizing / recovering explosives / propellant for over 15 years. Explo has a unique, on-site capability for purifying valuable TNT from tritonal for reuse.

KSLS reports, Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton says hazmat experts tell him the underground bunker containing explosives that blew up late Monday night at Camp Minden worked exactly as it was designed to do.

Sexton describes the bunker, in the “L-1 area,” as an “igloo,” constructed of concrete. He says they were built in the 50s. The underground bunkers are designed to send any blast up instead of out to lessen the shock wave impact. N…|head

Tne Shreveport Times reports Webster Parish officials confirmed  that a bunker at Camp Minden was the source of a loud boom that shattered windows and unnerved people throughout northwest Louisiana late last night.

The bunker belongs to Explo, one of the many tenants at Camp Minden that produces explosives on the expansive site, Webster Parish sheriff’s Chief Deputy Bobby Igo said.

No injuries were reported.

More reports:…

The Examiner quotes a “The National Weather Service report, that the ”Webster Parish Explosion was caused by Explosion of Old Munitions at Camp Minden last night.” It states:…

The Houston Chronicle Reports that” “Authorities initially speculated a meteorite may have shook the ground for miles in portions of northwest Louisiana late Monday night, but the mystery blast turned out to be an explosion at an industrial site in the area.

The blast occurred about 11:30 p.m. inside a bunker where explosive black powder was stored at Camp Minden in Webster Parish, according to the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office. 

Deputies said the bunker was designed to absorb and deflect such an explosion.”…

Accuweathr has several intersting 3D recreations and states: “The explosion sent a mystery object flying that was captured by radar in Shreveport. Speculation this morning focused on the possibilities of UFO’s and meteors before the confirmation of the bunker explosion was released.”

      1) something falling down from the sky towards the earth before the mushroom cloud was created
      2) Authorities initially speculated a meteorite
      3) The explosion sent a mystery object flying that was captured by radar
      4) Speculation this morning focused on the possibilities of UFO’s and meteors

      What other possibilities can be created for narratives that completely obscure the causality?

      We’ll let “Authorities” spin the “news”.

      Tell us another story.

        missile strike to detonate the explosives cache on the way to igniting the Madrid Fault?
        was “meterorites” that set off the fires in Colo last spring, remember? missile meteor shower…
        brought to you by the NWO.

        • Accurately

          What about end times giants in their ancient underground prisons doors exploding open for their release? Not likely much like the “official” story. :lol:

      • Ysalys

        lol Agree with ya completely! More along your thoughts here:

    • BigLoner

      Methinks multiple explosions could be, let’s see, migrating methane gas building up in deep munition storage bunkers. When built they probably didnt give thought to methane monitors / flooding compartment with inert gas ( would aphix personnel anyhow ). Probably just had area dehumidifiers in place like in mothballed ships, Methane from all the fracking / geo shelf activity builds in bunker, someone throws a switch or dehumidifier kicks in, then WHAAAAM. Hope they don’t store nerve gas in same region, I mean, certainly they must be reasonable men…..?

    • bella

      bombing the faultline?

      Probably simple accident, pressure release roof blown into the air as designed ( like safety valve on pressure cooker, venting).
      But ufo plot, aliens, men it black secret opps terrorist attacks all make better newspaper sales. Otherwise there would be nothing to write about in places like this. Nerve gas was mentioned but nobody has said anything about radioactive fall out YET. Nor was plant x mentioned, for some strange reason. Better get on with looking at rest of the internet to try to find more gold to die rich with in my bunker. 10,000 years from now some historian will come to the conclusion that the man in the gasmask that died from starvation surrounded by all that gold must have been an important king who gave his life for religious reasons. Might even think bunker was a sort of pyramid. Yes you are right I like the rest of you have nothing better to do.

      How comes there were casualties reported?

    • RedPill-Please

      First the massive munitions explosion at the Donguz military range in Orenburg, Urals, Russia and now this massive munitions explosion in the US – coincidence?

    • Anonymous

      For what it’s worth, I’ve seen 50,000 pounds of conventional explosives detonated inside a bunker (concrete; don’t recall if it had any special configuration; it certainly wasn’t domed. but did have a truncated pyramidal cross-section). It threw some seriously heavy debris quite a distance, and the cloud, at least for a short time after the explosion, had something of a mushroom shape. There was, though, no large, high-energy, multicolored fireball in the “bulb” of the cloud or lightnings through it – all the pyrotechnics were on the deck, nor was it anywhere near even a mile in height. It was, as I remember, maybe 1,500 – 2,000 feet high or so. It also vaporized some old shells that were brass-clad, and the brass then ended up very nicely coating some large pieces of concrete. The Range Head had a chunk mounted on his office wall. Unusual piece of art!
