GRAND PRAIRIE (CBSDFW.COM) - An explosion happened Saturday afternoon at a house that was under construction, according to the Grand Prairie Fire Department.

A construction crew working on the house accidentally ripped out the main gas line under the house. Firefighters are waiting on ATMOS to come turn off the gas to the house.

They have blocked off several streets around the house and are keeping people back, but no one has “officially” been evacuated.

The fire is under control and no one was hurt.
