Tuesday, November 13, 2012 - 4:35pm

Officials are investigating an explosion at the Camp Minden Goex Plant Tuesday morning.

In an 11:00 a.m. press conference, a Goex representative revealed a "fairly small explosion" took place at 8:36 a.m. Due to safety precautions in place, the explosion was kept from being much larger.

No injuries and minimal damage were reported at the scene of the incident.

The cause of the blast has not been released, but a full investigation is underway.

No evacuations were required following the eruption.

Last month, there was another, larger explosion at Camp Minden that occurred in a bunker owned by Explo.
