One person is dead and two are injured after a fire involving a test vehicle at the Army's Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland.
Army officials said the victims were employees at the Army's oldest active base for testing, training and research involving military weapons and materials.
Officials said in a statement there was an apparent malfunction Thursday morning involving a test vehicle in the Edgewood Area of the base. The area is about 20 miles northeast of Baltimore on Chesapeake Bay.
The employees were not identified and it was not immediately clear if they were soldiers or civilians. The Army said the fire was contained and there was no danger to the public.
