INDIANAPOLIS - A third party will assist with a "comprehensive investigation" of an underground explosion that prompted evacuations in downtown Indianapolis Wednesday, Indianapolis Power and Light said.
IPL told Call 6 Investigator Rafael Sanchez that results of the investigation are not expected for at least two to three months.
The site of the explosion -- a failed network protector near Meridian and Maryland streets -- was scheduled to be inspected this year.
The network protector is a $30,000 piece of equipment that is critical to help manage the flow of electricity below ground.
IPL will get help from Cleveland-based Eaton to inspect the equipment. The company with energy equipment expertise will review the scene of the explosion before IPL calls in a crane to remove the protector.
IPL said the area passed inspection in 2012.
No injuries or property damage were reported in the incident.
