FORT WORTH (WBAP/KLIF)- The Fort Worth Fire Department is investigating a home explosion in South Fort Worth.

The Fort Worth Fire Department’s Mike Drivdahl says one man, believed to be in his late 20’s, suffered critical injuries and was flown to Parkland Hospital.

Drivdhal said the man had severe burns to the front of his body that included his face and airway. “As for the home, three of the four walls were knocked out of place and the roof is flattened on half of the house,” he said.

FWFD Arson and Bomb Investigators arrived on scene and began their initial investigation as fire crews secured the scene and cleared the building of any other residents. Investigators are looking into what caused it but Drivdahl said they don’t believe it was any type of natural gas leak.

“It appears to be an isolated incident and  there are currently no other hazards to the neighborhood or surrounding area,” said Drivdahl.

This happened on 400 W Spurgeon near Seminary Drive and 35W.

In total 32 firefighters and 18 support staff were assigned to the incident.
