BEIRUT, Lebanon, (AP) – Lebanese security officials say several explosions have caused a large fire in a southern village.

One of the officials says blasts might have been triggered by an explosion at a weapons depot belonging to the Hezbollah militant group in the village of Shehabiyeh.

The two security officials said they did not know if there were any casualties.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are barred by military regulations from speaking to journalists.

Shehabiyeh village is south of the Litani River, an area patrolled by U.N. troops and Lebanese soldiers that is supposed to be free of weapons.
