Nellis Air Force Base detonating ‘unserviceable munitions’ Wednesday

Residents in northeast Las Vegas need not be concerned if they hear loud explosions on Wednesday morning.

The explosions are part of a planned event at the base in which the 99th Civil Engineer Squadron will detonate “unserviceable munitions” that can no longer be safely stored or shipped, the base said in a Wednesday news release.

The detonations will take place between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
