DALLAS (AP) - A spokesman for the Dallas suburb where a man was killed in a gas explosion says officials aren't sure if he was notified about a leak in the area.
Lewisville city spokesman James Kunke said Monday "we can't say for sure" if Scott Deahl (DEAL') was told Friday that crews were working on closing a natural gas leak about 50 to 60 feet from his home. While a few businesses downwind from the leak were evacuated, Kunke says Deahl was not because he was upwind.
Deahl died of his injuries Sunday night. Two firefighters were also hurt. Kunke says officials now believe gas moved underground into Deahl's home.
City assistant fire chief Brian Freed initially said Friday that Deahl was notified.
Lewisville is 20 miles northwest of Dallas.
