Officials say three people have been killed and several other injured after a natural gas line exploded
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 is a resident of nearby Granbury and she says the explosion made a "huge rumbling" and sounded like a tornado even from eight miles away.

The explosion caused a massive fire that sent orange flames and black smoke streaming into the air.

Cleburne is about 50 miles south of Dallas.
