KSP says Greenville home explosion was intentional

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, KY (WFIE) -

It's been just over two weeks since the home of Rudy Cundiff exploded on State Route 176 in Greenville. Fire investigators have finally cleared the scene, and they've concluded that this explosion was no accident.

"I have had threats before and so on," Cundiff said in an interview on February 10th, the day after his home blew up.  "And it's quite possible somebody could've done it. I just can't imagine anything having that much force. But I guess, it did."

Monday, Cundiff's suspicions were confirmed, as the Kentucky Fire Marshal's Office and Kentucky State Police concluded the fire was no accident.

"They've gotten some results back," Trooper Stu Recke said regarding debris testing investigators have conducted.

When asked what specifically caused the explosion, Recke says they won't release that information while the investigation is ongoing.

Recke also says there are no suspects right now. But with the public's help, KSP is hoping that will quickly change.

"The 1-800-27-ARSON or the 1-800-222-555, those numbers, like we said, if anybody has any information pertaining to this, we urge them to call us," Recke said. "And they can remain anonymous, if they wish to."

14 News tried to reach Cundiff Monday for an interview, but he declined to comment on the situation.

Anyone with information concerning this investigation, is urged to contact the KSP at 270-676-3313 or toll-free, in Kentucky, at 1-800-222-5555. 
Callers may also call 1-800-27-ARSON.  Callers may remain anonymous.
