As many as two dozen people have suffered inhalation injuries during a large training exercise at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms, California, fire officials told NBC News.

No other details were immediately available, but a San Bernardino County fire spokesperson said the base wasn't requesting help from the county.

An official with the base hospital said that there were no deaths and that most of the injuries were related to inhalation of a substance during an integrated training exercise, a live-fire, "urban-operations" exercise.
