Tons of dirt excavated at the old Army bombing range in southeast 
Orlando was used to build nearby roads and as fill for the Vista Lakes 
neighborhood, according to official records.

World War II-era bombs, bomb fragments and related contamination could 
be mixed in with the soil used to fill in swamps, make berms and level 
the ground for homes, a school and roads, records from the Army Corps of 
Engineers and county planning office show.

"This is what we've feared all along," said Ron Cumello, a retired 
program manager for Lockheed Martin and president of the Vista Lakes 
homeowners association.
