Louisiana State Police say it could weeks or even months before the cause of the blast at Camp Minden on Monday is known.
State officials say hazmat crews began collecting photo evidence from the scene on Tuesday to send to the Hazardous Materials Unit in Baton Rouge, where they'll comb through them to try to determine what caused the powerful blast.
"It's extremely detailed," explains Louisiana State Police Trooper Matt Harris. "After they conclude their investigation, they submit it to Baton Rouge where a whole other team examines it. That way we leave no stone unturned and everything is covered. If you miss something, it can be very crucial to the outcome of the investigation. You want things done right, especially with explosive materials and stuff like that."
