The loud explosion heard this morning in Fort Scott is not a cause for alarm, according to the Fort Scott Police Department.
“What I know is Fort Scott Munitions is testing some stuff,” Tracy Reed, FSPD Communications Manager said at 9:45 a.m.
Robbie Forester, president of Fort Scott Munitions is making a YouTube video with Hank Strange this morning, according to Steven Kalm, retail manager with FS Munitions.
“They shot about 52 pounds of tannerite,” he said. “It makes a pretty good bang.” The explosion took place southwest of Fort Scott, according to Kalm.
Strange is a YouTube personality who reviews guns.
