EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah — Utahns who live near Camp Williams, a training site for the National Guard, may hear explosions this week.

Eagle Mountain City sent out an alert Monday notifying that the camp will be conducting live-fire artillery training.

The exercises are planned for Tuesday-Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The training camp is also located near Bluffdale, Lehi and Saratoga Springs, so residents in those areas may also hear the live rounds.
