BM-21 Grad Rockets Magically Explode

In the forests outside Oleshky, Kherson Oblast, just across the Dnipro River from Kherson itself. A stockpile of 120 mm rockets is set ablaze and explodes in a spectacular fashion. The ignition source is unknown, but I doubt it was caused by a smoking accident, though that would be a very Russian thing to do. The rockets are utilized by the BM-21 Grad, a Cold War-era MLRS which has been a critical source of Russian indirect fires.
