"A wildfire ignited mines laid by the Cuban military decades ago and jumped the fence line at the U.S. Navy base at Guantánamo Bay on Thursday, threatening buildings and forcing evacuations of six neighborhoods"


In an afternoon broadcast on the base station, Radio Gitmo, base commander Navy Capt. Dave Culpepper advised: “Folks probably heard in the middle of the night a bunch of ordnance going off. And of course that was the fire burning on the other side of the fence, over on the Cuban side, their mines cooking off from the heat.”
