BEAVER DAM (WKOW) -- During Thursday's controlled burn of the Beaver Dam apartment at the center of a deadly explosion earlier this month, Mayor Becky Glewen announced that Bomb Techs were able to retrieve some belongings for residents of the building.
The controlled burn was performed just after 10:00 a.m. on Thursday.
Members of the response team decided during the preparation of the controlled burn, it was determined that FBI needed to conduct a sweep of the building. Bomb techs searched for any ammunition or other hazardous materials that could jeopardize the burn. It was decided that during the sweep, the experts would search for any jewelry or other family heirlooms inside.
Mayor Glewen thanked the public for their patience during the traumatic situation and their generosity for helping the people impacted by the explosion.
As a reminder, material donations may be made on behalf of the displaced families to St Vincent DePaul’s and monetary donations to Horicon Bank.
