That is excellent work! Way better than the aerial shot I put up. It appears to be brick for sure, just not old fashioned red brick. I wonder if there are any construction guys here from IN. In NY they started this fad, it's fake brick and fake rock facades, made out of recycled old tires if you can believe that. Looks extremely real, it would be great info to know wether or not there was a similar fad at IN as well to nail it down.

Great information, and I agree. The type of "brick" that those front walls were made of may very well be important to this puzzling situation.

I've also added more to my post on page 94 on the energy and a possible culprit involving a 6000 watt power generator.

If it is bonafide brick, it adds a whole new level of intrigue. Something put forth when I was comparing a good photo of gas explosion on a triplex from england, and this was that these houses were all wood. A brick front would blow that one out of the water.

The one in england, left the two connected structures standing, yet this one leveled two unconnected houses. If it was brick, that makes this one way more powerful than I thought.

Exactly, thats what I was thinking when I noticed that those walls may be brick walls. A blast of this magnitude seems like it could have come from something totally strange, perhaps?

Tumbler Ridge, BC
Castle Rock, CO.

Both of these completely destroyed the homes




Looking at pictures and video of these, the one in Tumbler Ridge, BC looks and sounds similar: Vancouverite story

The debris looks similar in the size of the pieces and it apparently damaged 26 other houses as well. But looking at the picture, the damages to the houses on each side must not have been anywhere near as severe as in Indianapolis. But maybe that house was smaller in Tumbler Ridge.

The Castle Rock one looks like the house was as big or bigger than the one in Indianapolis, but the pieces of debris are much larger for the house that blew up in Castle Rock and it doesn't look like it affected nearby houses anywhere near as much.as the explosion(s) in Indianapolis.

CBS News story on Castle Rock explosion

From the perspective of Occam's Razor, a natural gas explosion seems like the most likely cause. But there are some things that need to be accounted for that don't seem to fit that explanation:

The fire department PIO (Public Information Officer?) said two houses were completely destroyed in the explosion(s) and the ones on either side of them were damaged by fire (as well as the blast).

The gas company and NTSB said there were no leaks in the gas lines (the main lines or the lines to the homes).

The gas company allegedly said there was no residue of a natural gas explosion in soil that was analyzed (Not sure, but this may have been hearsay repeated by a poster.)

Experts have been quoted in this thread and the news media as saying that it is extremely unlikely that a faulty furnace or appliance would allow enough gas to leak to cause this.

The gas company said that the meter did not show any abnormal usage of gas, which means that if there was a gas leak it was not big enough to differ from normal use significantly.

So maybe it was a natural gas explosion... or maybe it was something else.

The man, Mr. Longworth was killed in the blast, worked for an audio company:


Her husband's employer, consumer electronics company Indy Audio Labs, issued a statement Monday saying it was "saddened by the loss."

Here's an interview with Mrs. Shirley. She seems pretty distraught about the entire situation.

www.usatoday.com...



Shirley's ex-husband, John Shirley, on Monday said he suspected a faulty furnace caused the blast, which officials said may have resulted from natural gas. "I don't know why he made that comment," Monseratte Shirley said Tuesday. She said they had been separated for two years and she knew of no gas problems in the home.



Fishy.



Shirley said she has spoken with fire investigators and has no idea what caused the explosion. She said she has consulted an attorney, who agreed to set up a video interview with The Star.



And for those that suspect her, a fairly legitimate alibi:


She said she and her boyfriend left Friday night to visit the Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Ind., and had planned to be away until Sunday. Her 12-year-old daughter was staying with a friend and she had boarded her cat, something she said she always does when she goes away.




Shirley said that she did not believe anyone intentionally caused the blast and that she did not feel threatened by anyone. "I'm just sad, and I mean it's horrible for everybody in my neighborhood, all the suffering. Everybody has been good neighbors."

Two homes were completely destroyed, and two homes were partially destroyed in the initial blast, along with I believe somewhere in the 50-80 homes damaged/uninhabitable due to buckled walls. The blast was followed by a fire that mostly destroyed the other two homes.


This wikipedia article regarding a natural gas main leak in Richmond, Indiana (of all things) suggests it could be possible, but currently the word is that there are no identifiable leaks:

en.wikipedia.org...


Now they're saying 80 homes affected.

Thanks.
The two houses halfway remaining have more explosion damage rather than fire damage and they are evenly destroyed indicating a blast radius.
That makes it pretty clear that a single house exploding from gas does not match up with the blast radius.

www.cnn.com...

It appears that there were 7 others injuried in the incident:


Two adults were killed, while seven others went to area hospitals, due to the explosion and related fires, said Deputy Chief Kenny Bacon of the Indianapolis Fire Department.


And 31 homes are deemed potentially uninhabitable and needing demoliton.


Another 31 suffered what Collins called "major damage" -- meaning, for most of them, it's still to be determined if they can be lived in again. Inspectors know for sure that five cannot, as they are "either gone or will require a demolition."


Folks, that's one hell of a big boom to make 2 homes disappear, 2 burn down, and 31 that are tens, if not hundreds of yards away, shift off their walls and foundations...

It's the magic that happens sometimes when you post last on a page before a new page starts.
It is the border between worlds, the veil between dimensions, the entrance to the Kingdom of the Fey and the Shadowlands. Travel with caution, bring us back a souvenier.

I don't know if it was mentioned but if you look at the row of houses in the middle of the pic.
Notice how the houses in the top of the pic have debris on the roof and the ones at the bottom do not have debris on the roof.
That indicates to me something incoming from above.

Somewhere in the thread it was mentioned of a place near there having two explosions a month or so apart.

Nice work, that certainly seems to indicate a direction to the blast.
Although it could be accounted for by the house closest to the debris roof being the source of the explosion, so debris didn't make it to the lower one as the other house took the rest of the blast.
A great point to bring up regardless.

That's a might big assumption. Maybe debris was lifted unevenly or it has to do with the structure and orientation of the destroyed houses..
