6 taken to hospital after house explodes in Dallas suburb | State

PLANO, Texas (AP) — Six people were taken to the hospital after a house exploded Monday in the Dallas suburb of Plano, authorities said.

Plano Fire-Rescue said on Twitter they did not currently know the cause of the explosion. Fire officials said that of the six people hospitalized, one had been inside the home that exploded and the other five lived in the home next door.

Plano Fire-Rescue said that their investigators and those with Atmos Energy were on the scene. A message left with Atmos was not immediately returned on Monday.

Video footage from the scene shows a large pile of rubble where a home once was, with debris and lumber scattered across the yard and into the street.

Neighbor Caroline Klobas told CBS 11 that she heard a noise she thought was her sliding glass door breaking.

“And I just noticed two picture frames on the wall fall down and the sound and that didn’t match up,” Klobas said. “And then, when my husband pulled into the garage, he saw that the roof in our garage had caved in.”
