This has been discussed a bit. It certainly appears to be fire retardant foam. The location seems a bit unlikely for a training exercise so it might have been an actual incident. Years ago, fire fighting training took place at the "Crash Pit" about 1,000 feet west of the site of this recent foam event. The training site eventually became the infamous burn and burial trenches that were cleaned up in the late 1990s.
