Illegal Immigrant Charged in TX Home Explosion

An illegal immigrant is on an ICE hold in a Fort Worth-area jail, after being charged with driving a car into a home and causing a massive explosion.

Investigators in Hurst, Texas say 40-year old Alejandro Enriquez-Castro was driving without a license when he crashed April 7th, rupturing a gas line and causing the explosion.

Officer Travis Hiser told Fox News, “I just remember a big heat wave and something kind of pushing me from the side... There was shrapnel coming out of the house. The roof explodes, insulation was coming out. Things were coming out on fire.”

Three residents in the home were hurt; one is still in critical condition.
