San Antonio, TX — On December 5, 2018, two children were sent to a hospital after an explosion destroyed part of their home on San Antonio’s West Side.
Officials say the explosion happened in the 9600 block of South Bend Wednesday night. The explosion, of undetermined origin, was said by investigators to have knocked a wall down off the home’s foundation near a bathroom in the house.
Crews with CPS Energy arrived at the scene to look for gas leaks; while they found some natural gas levels present, they said that the concentration was not strong enough to cause an explosion.
The two children, a 7-year-old boy and his sister, were transported to an area hospital with minor injuries, primarily as a precautionary measure.
The cause of the explosion is still being investigated.
