    I went to a church just a couple miles from there this morning (though an hour plus drive for me). Preacher's house was actually just 2 blocks down, and his garage door was damaged by the blast.

    My guess? Natural gas. Really just a guess, though.

    Same as Josh, just a guess, but it has all the ear marks of a natural gas leak/explosion.

    Same thing happened in northern CA, and the insuing fire destroyed an entire neighborhood. Not just a home leak, a pipeline is my guess. But then again, California homes don't have basements (earthquake country).

    I'd have to guess gas leak. For it to be a meth lab that'd have to be one helluva lab set up :eek:.

    A gas leak would cause this?

    Yes it would. I have been on an explosion like this in the past. It is amazing what a major pocket of gas in a house that is touched off by a pilot like can do.

    A gas leak caused that by accident. The owner of the house had tried for some time to sell it. He was gone and the wife and daughter had decided to stay in a hotel that night.:rolleyes:

    With a picture like that, it won't take the investigators long to find the source..

    First time I heard this. If it's true I would bet the farm a loosened gas fitting would fill a closed-up house with enough fumes to easily do this much damage. At the point at which a small spark from a relay, a start/run switch on a furnace motor, a fridg. start-relay, coffee pot, even an iron thermostat, ignites the fumes and there goes the neighborhood. Very few other things could cause this much damage.

    It could well have been a gas leak. We've had a couple of those over here. The damage looked to be onthe same scale.

    That's not what is being reported.

    Apparently the man moved out quite a while ago; ex-wife and daughter live there. The daughter was spending the night at a friend's house, and ex-wife was with her boyfriend at a casino.

    The fishy part is that the cat was being boarded. Cats do just fine being left alone for the weekend, so I don't know why someone would just randomly board the cat for one night. :rolleyes:

    Is that a real picture? All the houses are the same color and have the same roof.

    Yes, it's a real photo.

    We have many neighborhoods here that are developed by home building companies. They have four or five floor plans (with no personalizing available), and they keep their costs low by buy massive amounts of the exact same siding, shingles, etc.

    The whole south side of Indy is that way. Many of the neighborhoods have HOAs that further limit anything your can do to make your home unique. Flag poles banned, no parking in the driveway, etc. Just crazy if you ask me.

    Really easy to get lost in suburbia.

    same here. one builder or developer may have a themed subdivision. might be 3 floor plans available.. few options.. maybee screened room.. etc.. otherwise, as ford said.. you can have any color you want as long as it's black. :).. We call them 'cookie cutter' subdivisions.

    all same shingles.. and the HOA/POA has to approve paint colors.. thus tyou see 4-5 muted shades of paint.. all that go with greyish shingles.. plenty of them around here like that. I live next to one of the largest in the state.. say.. 10miles from me.. huge development..

    Got you tin foil hat on? Here is what is going around now about it:


    (Below is quoted)

    Do you really think the deal in greenwood is a result of a natural gas explosion???



    Well how come the American defense forces detected the firing of 2 AGM-114 hellfire missiles from a MQ-1 predator drone that was being operated by the CIA. They stated it was over the United States city of Indianapolis and that it resulted in two massive explosions. These are Obamas weapon of choice.



    This was from one outlet..

    ..."ALERT!!! RUSSIAN Satellite //Indianapolis Predator Drones Attack!!



    CIA TARGETS US Army Resources Services(PPBES) & US Finance & Accounting Service (DFAS) both located in Indianapolis, Indiana" with 2 each AGM-114 Hellfire Missiles. US Air Force EA-6B Prowler Electronic Warfare Aircraft monitored both missile's flight trajectory which had changed course simultaneously because it was countermanded by the Electronic Countermeasures---AN/ALQ-99 ECM Device on-board, causing the missiles to deviate from their assigned flight track....all of this was recorded by the Aerospace Defense Forces (VKO's) Kosmos 2479 Satellite. The Prowler was dispatched from Wright-Patterson AFB to track the CIA-operated MQ-1C Grey Eagle Drone & Hellfire Missiles when the missiles deviated to the South East Indianapolis Neighborhood & detonated, causing the lost of 2 lives, multiple injuries & massive 2 square blocks of damage to local homes there....so there it is...IT WAS DONE PURPOSELY TO ATTACK THE TWO MILITARY TARGETS, but accidentally caused this massive "Phantom Explosion"...Question is, what are you folks in Indiana gonna do about it...?????"



    Craziest part of this report is that it states the "intended targets" of these hellfire missiles appeared to be the US Army Resource Services (PPBES) and the US Defense Accounting Services (DCAS) BOTH located in INDY. Seem a bit strange? Well if you check out what these two offices do, it's kinda shocking and when you think that this happened within hours of The Obama/Petraeus deal. Look at all the other top military officials he has canned.



    Also, google natural gas explosion pics and you will find nothing of this magnitude! Then google pics of the catastrophic damage cause by these hellfire missiles and you will see a resemblance. And then that Atterbury is just 13 miles south of this and where many drones are kept and tested.



    Then there are reports that there is a media block to prevent this from coming out when there is proof from this satellite.



    It's hard to sit and think that anyone in the top levels of our government would allow for this to happen, but as facts surface that Obama stood and watched those in Benghazi get killed, nothing really surprises me.



    If this was gas, citizens gas can easily show there was a leak because one that cou,d cause something this big, would've leaked a bunch of gas and they can account for every bit of it. They continually monitor things like this and their first report was it was not a gas leak.

    The PPBES is tasked with overseeing critical, mandated, and/or sensitive US Defense and Army-wide programs including foreign currency fluctuation accounts, Individual Ready Reserve Mobilization of American Armed Forces, and is responsible for the evacuation of civilians in case of threats to the United States.



    The DFAS pays all US Defense Department (DoD) military and civilian personnel, retirees and annuitants, as well as major DoD contractors and vendors. DFAS also supports customers outside the DoD in support of electronic government initiatives. These customers include the Executive Office of the President, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Energy, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Broadcasting Board of Governors…. other top US Military leaders he has purged in the past 3 weeks, and which include: Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette, US Army General Carter Ham, Brigadier General Jeffery A. Sinclair, and US Navy Commander Joseph E. Darlak.
