Video shows North Texas house explode as officer steps into yard

HURST, Texas (AP) — Police have released dashcam video showing a North Texas house exploding just as a police officer steps into the yard while responding after an SUV hit the residence.

Hurst police released the video Wednesday from the April 7 explosion. Officers had responded to the house after an SUV crashed into it on April 7.

Officer Travis Hiser said it was “crazy” to have what seemed to be a safe and secure scene turn into “now everything is on fire and everything has been turned upside down.”

After the explosion, Hiser and Cpl. Ryan Tooker rescued three people — a couple and their adult son — from the home.

Police have said the home’s primary gas line and meter were severed in the crash.
