Cleaning Up Camp Butner

Contractors have just finished cleaning up the site of a former flamethrower range in Butner, North Carolina. The project is one small part of a larger cleanup needed to dispose of leftover munitions and debris from a World War II training facility. The training camp was shut down almost 60 years ago. But increasing development in and around Granville County has turned up unexploded shells and other hazardous material. With Federal dollars hard to come by, the entire cleanup will probably take years to complete. Rrusty Jacobs reports.
