GAINESVILLE, TX -- Investigators say they now know that a dump truck broke a gas line that led to an explosion at a Gainesville home.

A fire marshall issued the findings in a report.

It determined the dump truck fell through the street that had eroded because of a water line break, which workers were trying to fix at the time.

"A city dump truck was sitting on the road at that location. It became too heavy and it fell through the street and the truck and the debris from the street fell upon a service gas line, and that service line then bent and pulled out of the main line that it was connected too," Gainesville city manager Barry Sullivan said.

Investigators say natural gas entered the home through the sewer lines causing it to explode.

Investigators determined the explosion was an accident.

No one was hurt.
