Officials have lifted a lockdown at a navy base in Lakehurst, N.J.

Senior Airman David Carbajal, a spokesman, says there were several "incidents" Monday that he is not yet able to provide more information about. Carbajal says no shots were fired and the base is now secure.

The lockdown lasted about two hours and kept traffic from getting into or out of the base.

The base is perhaps best know as the spot where the airship Hindenberg exploded in 1937. Now known as the Naval Air Engineering Center, one of its main missions relates to the equipment used to launch aircraft from carriers at sea.
