According to WEVV, the explosion happened just after 8:40 a.m. in the 1700 block of Hercules Avenue. Sgt. Todd Ringle with the Indiana State Police said there were injuries from the blast, which drew a large response to the neighborhood.

WEVV reported that three people, one of them a child, were taken to area hospitals. Later, officials said two bodies were found in the basement of the home.
