A house explosion in a Dallas suburb injured at least three people, authorities said Monday.

Plano Fire-Rescue responded to the 4400 block of Cleveland Drive after the explosion around 4:45 p.m., a department spokeswoman told Fox News. Three people were taken to hospital, but the extent of their injuries has not been revealed.

Images posted online showed debris strewn across a residential area and what appeared to be a completely destroyed house.

“Here we go,” a police officer told KTVT-TV.

Investigators have not determined the cause of the explosion, officials said.

“All of a sudden I heard what I thought was my sliding glass door shattering,” neighbor Caroline Klobas told the newspaper. “And I just noticed that two frames on the wall fell off and the sound didn’t match. When my husband walked into our garage, the roof had collapsed.”
