Chemical crews safely isolate munitions

Blue Grass Army Depot

RICHMOND, Ky. (WTVQ) – Chemical crews identified and isolated GB rockets emitting vapor, which were originally detected March 13 at the Blue Grass Army Depot.

Using a mobile laboratory, operators detected the vapor during periodic monitoring of an igloo. After removing the rockets, crews monitored that igloo for three consecutive days with no agent detected.
