Man Hurt In Blast That Leveled Texas House Is Dead
United States (Texas) - A man injured in an explosion that leveled a North Texas home that is part of an affordable housing program has died at a hospital. Christian Community Action president and CEO Ron Batts says 55-year-old Scott Deahl died Sunday night. Batts' nonprofit group owns the home and rents it out to families who are struggling financially.

Deahl lived at the home in Lewisville, about 20 miles northwest of Dallas.

Two firefighters who were standing on the street near the home were also injured in Friday's explosion. One was hospitalized with chest pains and expected to recover; the other was treated and released that day.

Authorities are trying to determine what caused the blast inside the home. Firefighters initially went to the home that morning after a gas leak was reported.
