EFD: No New Revelations in Explosion Probe

Spokesman calls the investigation "complex"

It may take a long time to determine the cause of last week’s deadly house explosion in Evansville. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:

Evansville Fire Department Division Chief Mike Larson met with reporters at the blast site in the 1000 block of N. Weinbach Avenue Wednesday afternoon.

He said due to the complexity of the investigation, the number of parties involved with the probe, and the overall affected area, authorities have nothing new to report.

As a motorcycle sped by on re-opened Weinbach, WNIN asked Larson about the complications:

Larson was asked about the next steps:

The Indiana State Fire Marshal’s Office is the lead investigator.

The blast at 1010 N. Weinbach Avenue killed three people and left eleven homes damaged beyond repair.

CenterPoint Energy has said no crews were working in the area at the time of the blast, they found no natural gas leaks outside the house that exploded, and gas line pressure in the area tested normal.
