House Explosion Investigation

The Division Chief with Fond du Lac Fire and Rescue says the number of people investigating an explosion and fire at a duplex on Doty Street speaks to the seriousness of the issue. The explosion and fire at 23 Doty Street on July 9th was restricted to the entry way of one of the duplex units. Troy Haase says a number of people from the state’s Division of Criminal Investigation, ATF, and State Patrol also had a hand in processing the scene. He says there were four from DCI, five from ATF, and State Patrol brought in a trailer to process the scene. He says there were over 40 pieces from the explosive that were collected outside of the duplex plus what was collected inside. He says the Police Department is on top of the investigation. No one was injured during the incident. Two people were seen running from the scene. Fond du Lac Fire and Rescue photo.
