Investigators on the scene of a Marengo home explosion that destroyed or damaged neighboring homes, left eight to 10 more houses uninhabitable and sent two people to the hospital around 5 a.m. Sunday. Marengo Fire Chief Bob Bradbury said at least 30 additional homes in the neighborhood were affected by debris. A damage estimate isn't yet available. "We haven''t grasped that," Bradbury said. "We have a crew of building inspectors going around right now looking at the damages."
