People who were displaced after the fatal blast on Saturday are learning about the next steps involved in getting back in their houses at a meeting staged by the city's code enforcement division.

Listen:

The people living closest to the blast will be escorted back into their homes briefly.  Rita Burris with the IFD says the weather may make the investigation into the blast a bit more challenging, especially if the debris starts to ice over.  Dozens of residents showed up, hoping to get some answers about when they could return for good, and what they need to do to get their houses up and running again.

Burris says they are also worried about people's medical needs, so anyone who needs medication and is expecting it to arrive by UPS, can contact the delivery company, and arrange a pick up.
