Remember, if one goes off, all of the others are going to cookoff as well.
This assumes that they'd be using a form of conventional explosive that's volatile enough to explode when hit with another explosion. Most explosives are designed to be exceedingly stable unless specific conditions are met. RDX, for example, can be (relatively) safely set on fire, or shot with small arms without detonating it.
