Radioactive Material Discovered on Army Base

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- After radioactive materials were discovered on Fort Bliss, the Army now says the contamination is contained to the floor of one bunker at Biggs Army Airfield.

Nuclear weapons were assembled and stored in the bunker in the 1950's and 60's when it belonged to the Air Force.

Officials say there was no risk to those who worked in the bunker during the Cold War era or in recent times.
