Indianapolis Begins Damaged Home Demolitions


Indianapolis has ordered the demolitions of 33 homes in the subdivision rocked by the explosion that killed two and damaged more than 80 homes November 10th.

Indianapolis Department of Code Enforcement Deputy Director Adam Collins says they‘re evaluating wrecking permits on the first six properties set for demolition in the Richmond Hill subdivision this week.

Collins says some property owners and insurance agents are seeking additional time to get their paperwork in order. Collins says some demolitions could happen late today, but Tuesday or Wednesday are more likely.

He says four currently remain as evidence in the blast investigation.
