Posted: Updated:

CAMP PENDLETON (CNS) - Explosions audible within 50 miles of Camp Pendleton may be heard in parts of San Diego County and southern Orange County Sunday, as Marine practice removing land mines.

Starting about 7 a.m., combat engineers will lay mine-clearing lines, each containing 1,750 pounds of C-4 explosive, and detonate them, according to a Marine Corps statement.

The training started Saturday and is set to wrap up by about 8 Sunday night.
