The flattened home is located in the 4400 block of Cleveland Drive, about 22 miles north of Dallas. 

A resident of the home that exploded was taken by ambulance to a Plano hospital, along with five residents from a house next door.

Three people were taken to Medical City of Plano. Three others were transported to Children’s Medical Center Plano. 

Staff at Haggard Library felt the blast a mile away, according to the fire department.

Electricity and gas was shut off for the entire block, but was up and running again by 9.30pm except for the devastated home and two adjacent properties.

Gas distributor Atmos Energy, electric company Oncor and a bomb squad all investigated the scene, which was turned over to the fire marshal by 9pm.

Atmos Energy remained at the site. 

‘We are saddened by today’s tragedy of a house explosion in our city,’ said Plano Mayor John Muns in a statement. 

‘Several of our residents were injured. We are keeping them and their families close to our hearts and hoping for a swift and full recovery. Plano Fire-Rescue is working diligently to determine the cause of the blast. We’re asking all of you to keep the victims in your prayers.’
