Schwab range firing sparks forest fire

Date Posted: 2011-07-29

Light weapons firing training at a Camp Schwab range caused a minor fire, but officials report negligible damage.

The Okinawa Defense Bureau advised Okinawa Prefecture that the small fire was first spotted by a local resident who saw smoke while watching Range 10 at Camp Schwab. He reported the smoke to the Nago City Office. Officials say the small arms cartridge shooting caused a small forest fire.

A helicopter was mobilized to extinguish the blaze. Officials say the fire was extinguished less than six hours after first being reported. An investigation into the damage caused is now under way.
