YARMOUTH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Three weeks later, the clean up and investigation continues into the Yarmouth condo explosion that killed one man and destroyed several homes.

According to Yarmouth Fire Chief Michael Robitaille, the State Fire Marshal's office is still anaylzing evidence collected at the explosion site on Gables Road, as insurance representatives continue to examine the damage to surrounding homes.

Fire Investigators believe it was a propane explosion that killed 66-year-old Peter Correy, but they have not determined what caused it.

Chief Robitaille expects 6-9 buildings to be demolished. He said at latest estimation, the explosion has caused $6 million in damage.

Neighbors have started to make plans for reconstruction. Most said they expect the process to take between 6 months and a year to have a new home.
