ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Today marks the two-year anniversary of the explosion that blew apart a Pontoon Beach, Illinois home and heavily-damaged several nearby homes.

KMOX News has learned no criminal charges were ever filed for the Emerald Meadows subdivision incident.

A specific cause has not been determined.

The Madison County state’s attorney’s office says federal authorities took over the case. Calls by KMOX to their Fairview Heights offices were not returned.

Meanwhile, the owner of the home that exploded and her insurance company remain locked in a legal battle with the dispute set to go to trial in Madison County court on July 18th.
