MUHLENBERG CO., KY (WFIE) -

The investigation into what caused Saturday night's home explosion in Greenville is just getting started. 

Two days after the explosion at Rudy Cundiff's house on Highway 176, the fire has just about burned itself out completely, and giving fire investigators their first opportunity to take a look at what happened.

Kentucky Deputy Fire Marshal Alan Gregory says the investigation couldn't start until the debris cooled, making it safe to move.

Gregory says his office is working with multiple outside agencies on this investigation, though he won't specify who they are. Gregory also says that on Monday, they are focusing on paperwork and mapping out the debris field, as well as interviewing Cundiff and any possible witnesses.

"Today, we'll be finishing up the paper trail and making contact with other investigators to try to coordinate the overall investigation. We're just in the very, very early stages, at this time. We'll be progressing from here," Gregory told 14 News.

Gregory says he isn't sure exactly how long this investigation will last, saying they could be out here for days or maybe even weeks.

We will keep you updated, as we learn more about exactly what caused this explosion.
