Authorities blow up explosive chemicals found in Wisconsin apartment

Authorities blow up explosive chemicals found in Wisconsin apartment”

There was a loud boom and burst of flame as bomb squad experts used a "controlled detonation" to destroy explosive chemicals inside an apartment in Beaver Dam Wednesday afternoon.

Beaver Dam's police chief says the Federal Bureau of Investigation and ATF are still investigating after different chemicals and bomb-making materials were found inside the apartment. "These materials are so sensitive they can not be handled and they can not be removed from the affected apartment unit".

As a result it took until Tuesday to remove the body.

A Dodge County sheriff's officer USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin that vehicles are being removed from the apartment complex's parking lot prior to the 1 p.m. detonation and will be stored in the Fleet Farm parking lot.

Once the detonation happened, a fireball was sent through the apartment building - and visibly rocked the rest of the building.

Chief Kreuziger warned the controlled detonation could cause additional damage to other units in the building at 109 Knaup Drive.

Kreuziger says investigators found "highly volatile homemade explosives" in one of the apartments.The materials were described as "too sensitive" to be handled.

The blast it blew out the windows and a sliding glass door in a second floor apartment.

"I heard an explosion that rattled windows and obviously looked at the clock and I knew something didn't make sense".

"We are doing everything possible to minimize damage to the units and surrounding properties", Kreuziger said. "Thankfully we were able to get out, but my son's ashes are still in there". Police have not identified the man killed in the blast, and would not confirm whether it is the same person who is leasing the apartment.

Officials said there was great concern over the materials found inside the apartment.

Baisden was at home in Building #111 Monday afternoon when the explosion from Building #109 rocked the complex.

Police are allowing the occupants of the following apartment complexes to return to their apartments: 115, 117, 119, 123, 125, 127 and 129 Knaup Drive, and 222, 224, 226 and 228 East Industrial Drive. Beaver Dam police and fire officials, Dodge County Emergency Management, Public Health and Human Services, and the Dodge County Sheriff's Office will continue to work with those still displaced.
