  7. On Saturday night around 11 p.m., residents of the Richmond Hill subdivision on Indianapolis’ southeast side were shocked by a massive explosion on Fieldfare Way that set several homes ablaze, killing two people, leaving five homes completely destroyed and 26 others severely damaged. Residents described the explosion as a nightmare in which debris rained down on the area like snow, and windows and garage doors a block away from the epicenter were blown out. 

    Indiana has a long history of such accidents, including the 1963 gas blast that ripped through the Indianapolis State Fairgrounds Coliseum killing 74 people and injuring 400 others.
