James McClanahan with the sheriff’s department, the incident happened around 3:00 a.m. in a recreational vehicle parked in the Chisholm Trail Park subdivision.
There were two people inside of the RV at the time of the blast. One of them — a female — was injured and taken to Parkland Hospital in Dallas with first-degree and second-degree burns. The other victim was not injured.
