Louisiana State Police have released several photos of the explosion site on Camp Minden in Webster Parish.
The photos were taken from aboard a state police helicopter that flew over the scene just hours after the blast on Thursday, Sept. 29.
Approximately 320,890 pounds of CBI was initially stored in three bunkers. After the explosion, two-thirds of the CBI remains, or approximately 200,000 pounds stored between two bunkers.
State police also released dash camera footage that recorded the explosion. According to Louisiana State Police Facebook page, although the explosion looks significant in the video, it was much smaller than the one in 2012.
The Environmental Protection Agency confirmed there is no concern to air quality following the auto-ignition.
No one was hurt.
The incident still is under investigation.
