INDIANAPOLIS - An explosion that blew the roof off a west-side apartment building was caused by the slow release of natural gas inside one of the units, investigators said.
The Indianapolis Fire Department released a statement Tuesday about the May 15 blast, attributing the incident to "an unintentional, accidental opening of a gas line inside the townhouse of origin."
The explosion displaced several residents at the Pangea Riverside Apartment complex , and officials estimated about $250,000 in damage.
A 20-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman were hospitalized with burns after the explosion.
