Massive Explosion that Killed 2 in Indianapolis May Have Been Caused by Furnace
A massive explosion in Indianapolis that killed two people and forced the evacuation of 200 others may have been caused by a faulty furnace, said the ex-husband of the woman whose house was at the center of the blast, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Local police said the cause of the fire won’t be known immediately because of the size of the blast.
Local, state and federal authorities continue to treat the explosion like a crime scene, the Star reported. The Star wrote that John Shirley, ex-husband of Monserrate Shirley, received a text from his daughter a little more than a week ago about a broken furnace at the house. “I bet you anything that’s why it happened,” he told the Star. Authorities believe natural gas played a role in the explosion.
