ABC11, a local news affiliate, had initially reported that Fort Bragg officials confirmed 15 soldiers are hurt and were taken to Womack Army Medical Center, and that an explosion took place when a vehicle “rolled over on a remote part of base.”

Fort Bragg is home to the Airborne and Special Operations Forces.
