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.
