Huge explosion levels house in Texas, three people hospitalized

A house has been leveled and several people injured after an explosion in central Texas on Tuesday morning.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office says the fiery blast happened just before dawn at a home near Willis in north Montgomery County.

At least three people were transported to a Houston hospital with severe burns, according to My San Antonio Now.

It is not known at this time what caused the blast, but the house was completely destroyed. The explosion is currently under investigation.

A neighbor who lives a few houses away from the house that exploded told the Houston Chronicle, "It was a huge explosion. The whole house just shook. It shook your whole body."

Another man said the ceilings fell in two of the rooms of his house and that his front window was blown out.
