It's been almost a year since the deadly explosion at the Richmond Hill subdivision on Indy's southside.
Some residents have moved back into their homes after either rebuilding or repairing them following the fallout that killed two and damaged dozens of homes. Indianapolis Department of Code Enforcement figures show that a total of 29 houses were torn down because they were structurally unsound. Nine of those homes have been rebuilt and six remain in various stages of re-construction. 15 rebuild permits were issued.
Richmond Hill Resident David Kelley and his family have just moved back into their newly rebuilt home. Kelley says the past year has been hectic. Resident Meghan Pretti agrees. Her home had to get new walls, floors and repairs to the foundation. Pretti says one big benefit is they now know many of their neighbors.
