Fremont County Sheriff's deputies responded to three separate calls Saturday regarding explosions in the Burma Road area north of Riverton.

Residents in the area reportedly "heard and felt" the blasts beginning at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

Another explosion was reported at about 6:30 p.m. from the 100 block of Burma Road.

"It shook the (reporting party's) trailer," dispatchers said in initial reports.

"Not sure where it may be coming from."

Another caller said the noise was coming from a property near to Stallion Solids Control, 116 Burma Road.

The caller said the issue was an ongoing problem involving people setting off explosives in the area.

The subjects had left the area when law enforcement arrived at the scene.

Officials said no property damage or injuries were reported.
