JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska (AP) - The noise in and around Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson will continue a bit longer.

The base says in a release that Anchorage residents, especially those living on the east side of town, can expect to hear live-fire exercises through Friday.

The exercises were to have ended Wednesday. But a release from the Army says additional live-fire exercises were necessary.

The soldiers are conducting both mounted and dismounted personnel live-range firing ahead of an April visit to the Joint Readiness Training Center in Polk, La.

Training includes the use of artillery and mortars.
