At least two people are dead after a massive blast damaged dozens of homes in Indianapolis.
"It looks like a war zone."
A huge explosion sparked a fire in an Indianapolis neighborhood late Saturday night. Some three dozen homes were damaged or leveled by the deadly blast that could be felt three miles away.
Residents say they heard a loud explosion that blew out windows and caused ceilings to crash down. Many rushed outside to help others in need.
Fire officials say crews are going through homes one-by-one now that the fire is out.
The cause of the blast and subsequent blaze is still under investigation. The local energy company says there were no reports of a gas leak prior to the incident.
More than two-hundred people were evacuated from surrounding homes, and at least seven people were taken to the local hospital for injuries.
Fire officials say everyone else has been accounted for.
