​A natural-gas fueled explosion at about 6:45 a.m., (CST) Feb. 23, destroyed the single-family home at 3534 Espanola Drive, Dallas, killed a 12-year-old girl and injured several others.

The NTSB decided to investigate the accident and a team of three investigators arrived on-scene the morning of Feb. 25.  During the initial assessment of the accident site, investigators learned of two other homes in the immediate vicinity that were damaged by two separate explosions/fires two days earlier.
