    Deadly blast devastates neighborhood




    Associated Press/The Indianapolis Star, Matt Kryger - This aerial photo shows the two homes that were leveled and the numerous neighboring homes that were damaged from a massive explosion that sparked a huge fire and killed two people, Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012, in Indianapolis. Nearly three dozen homes were damaged or destroyed, and seven people were taken to a hospital with injuries authorities said Sunday. The powerful nighttime blast shattered windows, crumpled walls and could be felt at least three miles away.
    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Splintered beams and boards on a piece of charred earth were all that remained Sunday where at least two Indianapolis homes were leveled in a blast that killed two people and rendered homes for blocks uninhabitable.
    A backhoe raked through the rubble in the middle-class subdivision as clusters of firefighters and rescue workers weary from a long, chaotic day that began late the night before waited for their next assignment.
    The two-story, brick-faced homes on either side of those demolished by the blast were ruins. One home's roof was gone, a blackened husk left behind. On the other side of the gap, the side of a home was sheared off. Across the street, garage doors had buckled from the heat.
    It wasn't yet clear what caused the blast that shook the neighborhood at 11 p.m. Saturday. Residents described hearing a loud boom that blew out windows and collapsed ceilings. Some thought a plane had crashed or that it was an earthquake.

    They're still investigating what happened, but from what I've read it seems like the leading suspect is some sort of natural gas leak.

    Natural gas is kinda far fetched imo I've seen some fires due to natural gas ( used to do electrical and duct work) and unless they had a knot pipeline running underneath there house that seems kinda hard to believe, either way its gonna be one help of an insurance claim.

    This is what a gas line explosion would look like





    All it would take is for the gas (fumes) to build up in the house and one spark is enough to cause that type of damage.
