At least 15 members of US Army Special Operations Command were injured Thursday in an explosion at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Authorities said they were transported to Womack Army Medical Center by helicopter after an explosion on one of the training fields at the base, according to WRAL.

ABC affiliate WTVD has reported that the explosion happened when a vehicle rolled over at a remote area of the base, but details about the injuries remain unclear.

“There are injuries but we don’t know the extent,” Special Operations Command Lt. Col. Rob Bockholt told Fox News.

Fort Bragg is home to Army Airborne and Special Operations Forces.

This is a developing story.
