Update at 2:12 p.m.: The owner of the leveled house, Christian Community Actions, told NBC 5 that at least one man is in the hospital with injuries Fire and police officials have not confirmed the number of injuries.

Original post: Police are so far releasing few details, but there was a massive explosion on Main Street in Lewisville about 30 minutes ago. That's according both DFW Scanner --

-- and Gavin Cleaver, who you know better as that barbecue-loving Englishman. He was in his office, about a mile and a half down Main Street, when the explosion occurred.

"It was seriously huge," he said. "It felt like an earthquake." The shock was strong enough to crack one of the windows.

This being Texas, his boss piled everyone in the car for a quick field trip to the scene of the explosion. They didn't get very close, but near enough to see the 20-foot wall of flame and stretchers being carried in. Onlookers were evacuated shortly after, and Cleaver returned to the office to find that power to the area had been shut off.

Update at 1:26 p.m.

Hey libtard Nicholson, you and Jim Schitze should be happy about this. It happened in a yucky non-hipster non-Bishop Arts / non-Lakewood/Lower Greenville suburb. Maybe some white Christians died too! Yuk yuk yuk.

Do you really want to keep all those cutesy bits in a story about an explosion that may have hurt people and certainly damaged property?

@schutzenaivewhitegui 

it takes a certain level of, umm, adolescence to link a tragedy such as this to your campaign of making yourself look small.

great job!

@mavdog - turns out someone died, shitface. So good for a hipster libtard chuckle. Those stupid suburban fucks in Lewisville deserved it because they weren't cool and groovie and "progressive" like you. Yuk yuk yuk.

@SuperfuzzBigmuff - @SuperfuzzBigmuff - Hey shitface! Turns out someone died, but you asshole hipster bitches should celebrate because the dead person was probably just some icky suburban Christian who was probably white and maybe even a Republican. Yuk yuk yuk.

@schutzenaivewhitegui Ya, um, that's kind of my point. If anyone cared what was going on in Lewisville, there would be. Meanwhile, most of us reading the Dallas Observer are primarily concerned with things that affect Dallas.

Am I supposed to sign off calling you conservitard now?
