33 houses in blast area to be razed; 6 at risk for collapse

As many as 33 homes will have to be demolished in the Richmond Hill subdivision because of concerns about residents’ safety.

Those homes suffered major structural damage from the massive explosion that killed a Greenwood elementary school teacher and her husband and damaged 90 homes, Indianapolis code enforcement deputy director Adam Collins said. He said at least six of the homes are at immediate risk of collapse.

Investigators are sifting through the rubble at four of the houses near the source of the blast on Fieldfare Way in the southside subdivision.
