— The Army Corps of Engineers will start cleaning up a World War II training range this fall.

Thousands trained at Camp Butner through the end of World War II. The camp covered parts of Granville, Person and Durham counties.

In recent years, new homeowners have found unexploded munitions.

The Army Corps of Engineers plans to clean the area and distribute a video about the dangers of munitions. The cleanup will cost nearly $500,000.
