Hurst officer narrowly avoids house explosion

Officer Travis Hiser who was filmed approaching the property said'I just remember a big heat wave and something kind of pushing me from the side

A video out of the Dallas-Fort Worth area shows the moment when officers from the Hurst Police Department arrived at the scene where a auto crashed into a home and then exploded with officers standing just feet away. The crash apparently ruptured a gas line.

"It happened so quick, and so fluid, and so fast", said Corporal Ryan Tooker.

The police video shows several officers pulling up to the scene. "Otherwise, I would have been up on the wall and it would have exploded completely into my face", said Hiser.

Shortly after the explosion, the officers could hear screaming inside the home.


Roy Luttrell told WFAA his sister, 61-year old Dixie Bridges, has second-degree burns over 30-percent of her body and was sedated and stabilized as of Saturday night.

The people who were injured during the blast are expected to recover. He also suffered injuries trying to help in the rescue, but is out of the hospital and staying with relatives. Hurst resident Alejandro Enriquez-Castro, 35, was arrested at the scene of the explosion on a charge of not having a driver's license.

Hiser and another officer managed to escape with only minor injuries, according to the Dallas Morning News.
