Who was Jessica Teague ?

Charlie and Martina Hite, two of the three people who died in Wednesday’s horrific Indiana home explosion, were partners in marriage and business with a connection to their community.

The couple, ages 43 and 37, worked at the same Fresh Market store in Evansville, Ind., and also ran a regular table at the flea market, while Charlie volunteered for the high school football team.

Charlie’s brother Steve, the team manager for that same Harrison High School team, was on his way to Charlie’s house to pick him up when he heard the explosion about five minutes away, according to Courier & Press.

Steve’s brother was making videos and handing out equipment at an unpaid function for the school.

Aaron Hite, Steve’s son and Charlie’s nephew, said the couple had no children, only pets.

He added that his aunt and uncle loved and supported him and helped him move into his first apartment in Evansville.

Gofundme

A Gofundme has been created to cover the couple’s end-of-life expenses and anything else the family may need.

Jessica Teague, 29, was the third person killed in the blast.

A Ring Doorbell camera captured the terrifying moment a house exploded in Evansville, Indiana, killing the Hites and Teagues and damaging 39 homes in a residential neighborhood.

Maddie Struble posted the video on Facebook Wednesday night, showing flying debris before it clears to reveal the front porch of her home with an American flag still waving.

Bent and broken roof shingles were seen on top of the porch, as smoke engulfed the area and a home across the street was destroyed.

‘Luckily Trevor and I weren’t home; however, our house is uninhabitable,” Struble captioned the video.

“We cannot thank the Evansville Police Department for all of their help in finding our dogs and returning them to us,” she wrote, noting, “Our cat is still out there so keep an eye out for him.”

“Our hearts go out to the people across the street who lost their lives in this tragic event.”

The explosion was reported around 1 p.m. in the 1000 block of North Weinbach Avenue in Evansville and had a blast radius of 100 feet, authorities said, completely leveling one home where the blast occurred, splitting another in half and severely damaging 39 others.

One resident, Dorthy Waters, described the explosion as a “sonic boom”.

“I thought a bomb fell on us or a tree fell through the house,” she told 14 News. ‘It shook so hard, it went through my chest, it rattled my windows.

“I don’t know what happened, but I am very sad for these people.”

Three people died on impact and one other was transported to a nearby hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. Their names have not yet been released, pending notification of relatives.

Authorities are now warning there may be others after they called off search efforts Wednesday night due to “unstable” homes, Fire Chief Mike Connelly said at a news conference Thursday morning.

He said crews were being called to the scene on Thursday to shore up houses so the Fire Department could continue its search efforts, but at least 11 houses must be completely demolished and are ‘uninhabitable’.

The American Red Cross assisted 15 families who were displaced by the explosion.

Evansville firefighters were expected to give an update at 11 a.m. local time.

At a news conference Thursday morning, Connelly said the Evansville Fire Department first received a call about a home explosion at 12:59 p.m. m. Wednesday, with the first units arriving at the scene at 1:02 p.m. m.

A structural collapse team was also called to the scene, as was the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that was investigating the explosion.

Meanwhile, CenterPoint Energy, the local gas utility, found no evidence of a natural gas explosion. He was last called to the house where the explosion originated in January 2018.

The cause of the explosion remains unclear, Connelly said at his news conference on Thursday, noting: “It’s going to be a very tedious process.”

He previously said debris, including “typical building materials” such as clapboards, window panes and insulation, was scattered within a 100-foot radius.

Video

Aerial video posted on social media showed the extent of damage in a residential neighborhood as police and firefighters stood by in Evansville, on the Kentucky border.

Photos released by Mayor Lloyd Winnecke also showed destruction from the blast with pieces of homes strewn across the neighborhood and emergency workers sifting through the debris.

Resident Drew Slader, who lived near him, told local media that he was sitting on his couch when the force of the blast threw him several feet. He shared a video from inside his damaged home that showed broken window frames and kitchen cabinets hanging off the wall.

Vincent Taylor, meanwhile, was working on a roof two blocks from the blast, and when it went off he said he saw debris falling from the sky.

Taylor immediately rushed to the scene, he told 14 News, where he “saw the guy on the lawn and he looked bad.”

“Many people lost everything down here, their houses completely disappeared,” he said. ‘It is bad.

Jacki Baumgart, an office manager for Award World Trophies about 2 1/2 blocks from the blast site, also said she and other employees in the building panicked when they heard the loud bang and saw smoke.

“We think a tree fell on the building or a car drove into the building,” Baumgart said. Debris fell from the roof.

She continued: ‘Everyone here immediately ran out of the building. We thought the building was going to collapse.

And neighbor Roxane Weber, who lives a half-block from the blast, said she is “concerned about other people around her,” noting that “they are mostly older people.”
