One person killed, several homes impacted by IN house explosion”

"I would say five to six of those have sustained considerable damage and may not be able to be occupied".

Crews say those injured are being treated at the University of Lousiville Hospital.

"The Jeffersonville Police Department will maintain security and portions of the 900 block of Assembly Rd. will be closed for safety".

A photo posted to Facebook by the fire department shows debris and damage covering the ground as firefighters stand near a home that is destroyed, but still standing.

Damaged vehicles sit amongst the debris of a deadly home explosion in Jeffersonville, Ind., on May 19, 2019. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and the entire Capitol Hills neighborhood.

We are a strong community and are lucky to live in an area that cares about its neighbors.

Jeffersonville police and Indiana State Police are investigating the cause.

Natalie Hedde, a spokeswoman for IN utility Vectren, said the company shut off gaff supply to 14 homes IN the area and that 12 homes had been evacuated as a precaution.

Neighbor William Short said he was awakened by the sound of the explosion, and saw what looked like fireworks coming from the house. Short looked outside again and saw from the light of a burning vehicle that his neighbor's home was gone.

That's when he heard a second "boom" - and that one "exploded his windows, blew off his front door and cracked his ceilings", the newspaper reported. They're waiting to be let back in their homes to see what's left.
