VIDEO: Eight people were injured Wednesday in an explosion at an apartment building in southern Dallas, including four Dallas firefighters and four others who are in critical condition, officials said. As of Thursday morning, one firefighter and four other people have been released from the hospital. The three firefighters are still being treated for their injuries. The firefighters were responding to a report of a natural gas leak at the apartment building when the explosion happened. Seven of the victims were taken to Parkland Hospital and one was taken to Baylor. Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans initially said two of the firefighters were in critical condition, but that number later changed to three. All four of the injured firefighters were taken to Parkland. All are expected to survive, but it will be a long road to recovery.
