BAGHDAD, Iraq - A massive fire at an ammunition dump at a U.S. base in
southern Baghdad was sparked by a mortar round fired by insurgents, which
set off a series of explosions from detonating tank and artillery shells
that shook buildings miles (kilometers) away, the U.S. military said
Wednesday.

The 82mm mortar round was fired from a nearby residential area and hit
Forward Operating Base Falcon around 10:40 p.m. (1940 GMT) Tuesday night,
spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Withington said. No injuries were reported
