LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Work is expected to begin this week to tear down part of an Indianapolis neighborhood ravaged by a deadly explosion.

After getting a closer look, officials have ordered the demolition of 29 houses, and that work has to be done by December 20th.

Four other homes, including two that were leveled in the blast, are being maintained as police investigate what they believe was an intentional natural gas explosion.

No arrests have been made.

Dozens of other houses were also damaged. The total damage is estimated to be $4.4 million.
