An explosion has completely destroyed two homes and damaged dozens of others.
The Indianapolis Fire Department says the explosion happened on the 8400 block of Field Fair Way and Towhees Drive.
Dispatchers say there was an explosion on the south side of the city.
A thunderous, late-night explosion destroyed at least two homes in Indianapolis and set surrounding homes ablaze, causing injuries, authorities said Sunday.
The cause of the explosion and fires wasn’t immediately clear, but Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard dismissed reports of a possible plane crash as he arrived at the scene. Fire officials said separately that investigators would be checking whether natural gas was possibly involved but they had no further details on what was behind the blast that sent tall flames skyward.
