INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The investigation into a deadly Indianapolis explosion has turned to appliances from the destroyed homes.

Indianapolis Homeland Security Director Gary Coons said Tuesday that his "investigators believe natural gas is involved." He said they are "recovering the appliances from destroyed homes to help determine the cause."

The blast Saturday night killed two people and decimated a neighborhood.
