Explo Systems is currently under investigation for improperly storing millions of pounds of a military propellant, prompting the evacuation of the nearby town of Doyline, La. Documents reviewed by The Associated Press show Explo Systems Inc. was previously cited for safety violations in 2007 after old Army explosives were used in mining operations in West Virginia.
