EDINBURGH, Ind. (AP) - Military officials are warning about additional gunfire and explosions coming from the Indiana National Guard’s Camp Atterbury during training exercises over the next couple of weeks.

The exercises involving about 13,000 soldiers are scheduled to last through Aug. 20 at the base near Edinburgh about 25 miles south of Indianapolis.

Atterbury spokeswoman Capt. Jessica Cates says the number of troops at the base is the most since active mobilization training ended in 2012. Cates tells the (Franklin) Daily Journal (https://bit.ly/2b8a7it ) some of the training will be done through the night and more military convoys will travel on roads around the base.

Thousands of troops are doing annual training for evaluations, which will include training for multiple scenarios, artillery fire and some movement.
