Two houses just straight up exploded in Indy last night
 


Just completely gone, nothing left. Over a dozen other homes took damage. Somehow only two deaths, as of now. Explosion was felt for miles, and nobody knows what happened yet.

Quote:

IFD is reporting a second fatality in the explosion on Fieldfare Way. And 18 homes are confirmed damaged around where the explosion occurred shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday. It forced the evacuation of an area of several blocks, and families won't be allowed back in because the cause remains unknown pending further investigation.

"Every investigator in town is here sorting through the rubble tonight," Indianapolis Fire Department spokeswoman Bonnie Hensley. "We don't know if there are more victims.

Some witnesses have said they thought it was a plane crash. Others have said fireworks, or a gas explosion is possible.

Gas has been cut off to the area.

Nearby businesses have donated food and water to the evacuation shelter at Mary Bryan Elementary School where at least 200 people had been to in the hours after the incident. The American Red Cross is caring for people as well.

And this was I believe in Beech Grove, these aren't little 2 bedroom ranches or something. They're large 250k+ homes made of brick. And nothing's left.

Local news is showing overhead shots from the helicopter, it legitimately looks like a bomb got dropped on the neighborhood.

So what was it? Narcotics lab??

Sounds absolutely unfitting for some houses to explode. Sorry for you, Indianians.

No, a meth lab doesn't make an explosion this big. Two houses are literally nothing but rubble and foundation and there's major, major damage to neighboring houses. It's got to be gas.

A similar thing happened here awhile back. Idiot construction workers ruptured a gas line without knowing it, it leaked natural gas into a few houses for several hours, spark, boom. Scary shit.

Fox News: The house of a CIA rep expected to testify mysteriously blows up, sources indicate Obama called for attack. WE HAVE AN EMAIL ABOUT THE INCIDENT WITH THE NAME OF A WHITE HOUSE REP IN SENDER LIST OBVIOUS INSIDE JOB. Dems cheated, Romeny won.

But seriously, that is some crazy shit.
