(Courtesy - KXAS‑TV) A gas leak is suspected to have caused a house explosion in Dallas.

A woman and her five children were awakened by a fire around six a.m. Just after they exited the home through a window, an explosion leveled the house.

According to NBC 5 Dallas report, Dallas Fire-Rescue Department spokesman Jason Evans said firefighters responded to a call at a single-story home on the 1600 block of Champagne Drive in Oak Cliff at 6:05 a.m.  When they arrived the home was engulfed in flames.

DFR officials said a woman and her five children were inside the house when the fire started. Jenkins told NBC 5 Dallas that all six climbed out the front window and that one of the boys pulled his sister out of the house just before an explosion.
