Gas line ex­plodes, burns homes, roads

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

Four homes went up in flames and col­lapsed in charred heaps Tues­day af­ter a nat­u­ral gas line ex­ploded in an in­ferno that raged for at least an hour, melt­ing guardrails and pave­ment on a swath of In­ter­state 77. Five other homes had ex­ten­sive ex­ter­nal dam­age, and sev­eral peo­ple were treated for smoke in­hala­tion, but au­thor­i­ties said there were no fa­tal­i­ties and all res­i­dents had been ac­counted for.
