The investigation into Wednesday's house explosion on Military Road in the Town of Niagara is now a criminal matter.
Federal investigators say it is important to continue to dig into the basement of the destroyed home to find out why there was such excessive damage. The single-family house first imploded, then exploded.
Officials says debris shot into the air damaging several nearby homes, businesses and motor vehicles. No one was seriously hurt in the blast although two people needed medical attention.
