Witnesses near the training facility on March Road told CBC News they heard a "big bang" that sounded like an explosion.

Ottawa police Const. Marc Soucy said the incident occurred just after 10 a.m. ET during a joint training exercise.

"Three participants were injured during an incident and all three have been transported to hospital," he said.

Sources told CBC News that the first responders suffered "serious burns."
