Alaska State Troopers say two homes in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough were damaged when explosive material found in a storage unit was removed and detonated.
The explosive material was found May 9 at McGhans’ Storage Facility in Big Lake.
Federal firearms officials, explosive ordnance disposal personnel from Fort Richardson and firefighters also responded.
The agencies decided to move the explosives to a different location and then detonate them.
Shortly after the detonation, two homeowners reported damaged windows. The two houses were about a half mile from the detonation area.
Troopers confirmed the damage and told the homeowners to contact them Monday for a further assessment.
