One Dead in Texas House Explosion

McKINNEY, Texas -- One person is dead after a house explosion in the Dallas suburb of McKinney.

The explosion and resulting fire spread to an adjacent two-story home. Both were heavily damaged in the Friday incident.

McKinney police Lt. Scott Brewer says officers responded about 3:40 p.m. to the report of a suicidal person. Officers arrived and made telephone contact with Tab Brewer inside the house and persuaded him to let a woman and five children leave. He says an explosion then tore through the house, setting fire to it and the neighboring house.

Brewer's body was found inside. No other injuries have been reported.
