PICTURED: Couple who died in horrific Indiana house explosion worked together and had a flea market table in town: Cops probe cause of blast that leveled 39 homes

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

The couple, 43 and 37, both worked at the same Fresh Market store in Evansville Indiana and also had a regular flea market table, while Charlie was a volunteer for the high school football team.

Charlie's brother Steve - the equipment manager for that same Harrison High School team - was headed to Charlie's home to pick him up when he heard the blast about five minutes away, according to the Courier & Press. 

Steve's brother would shoot video and hand out equipment in an unpaid role 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 were loving and supportive and had helped him move into his first Evansville apartment.

A Gofundme has been set up to cover end-of-life expenses for the couple and anything else the family may need.  

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

Charlie and Martina Hite, two of the three people who died in the horrific Indiana house explosion Thursday, were partners in marriage and in business with a connection to their community. The couple, 43 and 37, both worked at the same Fresh Market store in Evansville Indiana and also had a regular flea market table

A Ring doorbell camera caught the terrifying moment a house exploded in Evansville, Indiana, killing the Hites and Teague and damaging 39 homes in a residential neighborhood.

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

Roof slats were seen bent and broken on top of the porch, as smoke enveloped the area and a home across the street was destroyed.

'Luckily, Trevor and I were not home; however our home is unlivable,' Struble captioned the video.

'We cannot thank the Evansville Police Department for all of their help with finding our dogs and getting them back to us,' she wrote, noting: 'Our cat is still out there, so please be on the lookout for him.

'Our hearts go out to the people across the street who lost their lives from this tragic event.' 

The blast was reported around 1pm in the 1000 block of North Weinbach Avenue in Evansville and had a 100-foot blast radius, officials said, which completely leveled one house where the explosion occurred, split another in half and heavily damaged 39 others.

One resident, Dorthy Waters, described the blast as a 'sonic boom.'

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

'I don't know what happened, but I'm very sad about these people.' 

Three people were killed in the impact, and another was transported to a nearby hospital for non life-threatening injuries. Their names have not yet been released, pending notification of next of kin.

Authorities now warn there may be others after they called off search efforts Wednesday night due to the 'instability' of the homes, Fire Chief Mike Connelly said in a news conference Thursday morning.

He said crews were being called to the scene on Thursday to shore up the homes so the Fire Department could continue its search efforts but at least 11 homes need to be completely torn down and are 'uninhabitable.'

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

Evansville fire officials were expected to give an update at 11am local time.

After the debris cleared up, roof slats could be seen covering Maddie Struble's front porch, and the home across the street was completely gone

In a news conference on Thursday morning, Connelly said the Evansville Fire Department first received a call about a home explosion at 12.59pm on Wednesday, and the first units arrived on the scene by 1.02pm.

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

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

The cause of the explosion remains unclear, Connelly said in his news conference Thursday, noting: 'It's going to be a very tedious process.'

He previously said debris including 'typical construction materials' like wooden boards, window glass and insulation were strewn over a 100-foot radius.

She continued: 'Everybody here immediately ran out of the building. We thought the building was going to come down.'

And neighbor Roxane Weber, who lives just about a half block down the road from the blast  said she is 'worried for other people around them,' noting 'it's mostly older folks on that end.'
