Wisconsin authorities conduct controlled detonation of explosives found in apartment

Beaver Dam Police Chief John Kreuziger

A Monday explosion at the facility killed one man.

Police say the detonation could cause additional damage to the apartment unit.

Kreuziger identified the man fatally killed in the apartment as the occupant. "They just said we had to get out", she said. After the detonation, there was a fire in the attic area and adjacent apartments.

Beaver Dam police Chief John Kreuziger said during a news briefing Wednesday morning that a significant amount of highly volatile homemade explosives was inside the home, and it wasn't safe to enter.

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

They say the homemade explosive materials found inside the home were so volatile that detonation was their best option.

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

"We managed to get out but my son passed away in 2016 and his ashes are still in that apartment", Barlow said.

The explosives could not be removed which is why they're conducting the detonation inside the apartment. Kreuziger said some neighbors will likely be allowed to return to their apartments Wednesday night.

The identity of the man who died remains publicly unknown, and the investigation into why he had the chemicals in the apartment remains "very active", Kreuziger said.

Dodge County Emergency Management has opened an account at the Horicon State Bank to assist the residents that have been displaced from Knaup Drive apartment building number 109.

The Beaver Dam Police Department and Dodge County Sheriff's Office is maintaining the evacuation order in place for all other residences that have already been evacuated.

Affected residents were told to gather at a church at 408 South Spring Street at 11:30 a.m. for a meeting with officials. The funds will be for the 109 Knaup Dr. Apartment Residents ONLY.

Victim specialists are continuing to work directly with the families and in some cases have reunited displaced residents with pets left behind.
