CLEBURNE, Texas — Officials say three people have been killed after a natural gas line explosion in rural north Texas.
Officials say workers apparently hit the underground line south of Dallas while digging on Monday.
Johnson County Emergency Management Coordinator Jack Snow says about six people were transported by air or ground ambulance to hospitals.
Laura Harlin, a resident of nearby Granbury, says the explosion made a “huge rumbling” and sounded like a tornado even from eight miles away.
