Charges were placed in and around the effected apartment.
"After the detonation, there was a fire in the attic area and adjacent apartments, extinguished by the Beaver Dam Fire Department", Kreuziger said.
The controlled detonation happened at 1:31 p.m.in Beaver Dam.
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.
Tolomeo said explosive officials had to destroy the risky materials because they were highly volatile and couldn't be handled or removed.
Authorities are looking into the possibility of calls to the apartment to see if the victim had ties to anyone else. The family has been out of their apartment since the Monday explosion at Village Glen and learned during Wednesday's press conference that the bombs in the apartment would be detonated since they are too volatile to remove. "But right now, until we have that, we're going to withhold any information concerning him", said Milwaukee FBI Special Agent Justin Tolomeo.
The explosion Monday, which occurred at 12:56 p.m.in an upper apartment in the 109 Knaup Drive building, killing the man who was inside, police said. Pertinent evidence was also removed prior to the detonation Wednesday afternoon. Explosive items were found in the garage he was renting as well as the apartment.
Mark McMullen, who lives in a surrounding building in the complex, says it's been stressful to not be able to go home for days. All money will be used for the residents of the building where the explosion happened. Officials say a town hall meeting for residents of the complex will be held at 11 a.m.at 408 S. Spring St.in Beaver Dam.
A spokesperson for Keystone Manor Senior Apartment said 50 residents there have been evacuated on Monday.
Alex Steen, 24, was one of the residents who was forced to leave her home following the explosion.
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. All dog owners asked to evacuate were able to take their pets on their own.
