29 homes damaged in Indianapolis explosion to be demolished

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Officials in Indianapolis have ordered the demolition of 29 homes in a blast-ravaged neighborhood hit by a deadly house explosion.

City code enforcement official Adam Collins said Wednesday that demolition orders have been issued for about a quarter of the 125 homes in the subdivision.

Collins says another four homes will also likely be razed, but no demolition orders have yet been issued for them because they remain part of the city's investigation into the Nov. 10 explosion. Those four homes include the home investigators believe exploded and an adjacent home where a young couple died.

Investigators are continuing to probe the blast, which they've concluded was not an accident. Officials say they believe natural gas was involved in the explosion.

Authorities remain tight-lipped about their probe, declining to say if they've identified potential suspects or made any breaks in the case.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said Wednesday no arrests have been made in the Nov. 10 blast that killed a young couple and destroyed or heavily damaged dozens of homes. He says investigators are continuing to seek and serve warrants and question people "as additional information develops."

He declined to say who investigators had questioned, if they had identified any potential suspects or made any breaks in the case.

Authorities said Monday they had concluded the blast was not an accident.

Curry says investigators are continuing to "narrow down the precise mechanics of the explosion."
