MINDEN, La. (AP) - Area residents will see smoke coming from Camp Minden as early as next week, but Lt. Col. Brad Kendall with the Louisiana National Guard wants residents to know it has nothing to do with the disposal of M6.

The Minden Press-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1CEveAm ) any smoke seen would be from a prescribed forestry management burn. Depending on the weather, he says the guard hopes to burn around 1,500 acres between Feb. 1 and April 1.

Kendall also said Barksdale Air Force Base is currently conducting a similar management burn.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has plans to burn 15 million pounds of improperly stored M6 artillery propellant, prompting concerns about the resulting emissions and smoke’s effect on the environment.
