    RENO, Nev. – DEVELOPING: An explosion at a military ammunition storage facility in Nevada during a Marine Corps training exercise caused several fatalities, officials said early Tuesday.

    Several Marines were killed in the Monday night explosion at the Hawthorne Army Depot, sources told Fox News. Russ Collier, an official at the facility, told KRNV-TV that the explosion was an accident unrelated to the ammunition that is stored at the military facility near the small desert community of Hawthorne.

    The 147,000-acre depot is about 140 miles southeast of Reno. The Mineral County sheriff's office said it did not have any details.

    The Hawthorne Army Depot stores and disposes of ammunition, and provides long-term storage for industrial plant equipment. The facility is comprised of hundreds of buildings spread over more than 230 square miles.

    Deadly explosion at Nevada's Hawthorne Army Depot prompts suspension of 60mm mortars


    Seven U.S. Marines were killed and several others were wounded Monday when a mortar exploded prematurely inside is firing tube during mountain training exercises at Hawthorne Army Depot in Nevada. It's unclear what caused the malfunction.

    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    On the Senate floor today did Reid blame this on sequestration?

    If so, instead of making some anti-Republican statement that I imagine he was trying to make, he needs to blame himself. Scumbag.
    Be Not Afraid.

    It was Barack Hussein Obama’s idea to place the heaviest cuts in the sequester on the military. It was Harry Reid’s intransigence that refused to allow House bills that would have avoided cuts to the military to be brought to the floor of the Senate. And it was both Reid and Obama who stopped a Senate bill that would have allowed Obama to cut the sequestration amount largely at his discretion.
