A gas line explosion in Coolidge, Ariz. killed two people and severely injured another early Sunday. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office says a gas line break likely caused the blast at the rural farmhouse near SR 87 and East Randolph Road.

Rosalina Alvarez was severely burned after escaping the burning house through a window. She was flown to Maricopa Medical Center for treatment. Sadly, her husband Luis and their 14-year-old daughter Valerie died in the explosion.

Kinder Morgan released a statement that El Paso Natural Gas Company “experienced a pipeline failure.” Investigators are looking further into the cause of the rupture.
