Indianapolis House Explosion

November 27, 2012 by  

Indianapolis House Explosion, A couple whose home was heavily damaged by a deadly house explosion that left part of an Indianapolis neighborhood in ruins watched quietly Tuesday as a large excavator pulled apart their shattered home – the first of nearly three dozen slated for demolition in the coming month.

Brett and Nikki Cocherell stood subdued across the street as the excavator tore into their home’s second floor, sending insulation and drywall dust flying and revealing its buttery-yellow and pale blue interior walls.

The couple left before the demolition was complete and did not speak to reporters, taking with them a small section of mortared bricks pulled from their home’s rubble as a memento.

Mike Phillips, a neighbor who stood with the couple during part of the demolition work, said they were in a surprisingly good frame of mind as they watched their home come down.

“They were kind of joking, trying to keep it lighthearted. They’re in good spirits,” said Phillips, who was awaiting an engineer to examine his home, which was also damaged in the explosion.
