Indianapolis's deputy code enforcement director says 29 homes remain uninhabitable in a south side neighborhood that was the scene of an explosion and fire.

Deputy director Adams Collins said Monday that six of the 29 homes will need substantial shoring up before residents can even enter them to retrieve valuables and other belongings.

He says the blast and fire Saturday night damaged 80 homes and caused an estimated $3.6 million in damages.

Collins says some residents were allowed to take insurance adjusters and agents to their damaged homes Monday so they can begin the process of restoring the structures.
