Four people have been burned after a home in Fort Worth exploded. A woman, two men and a teenage boy are all in a Dallas hospital. The woman and one man have extensive burns. The other two victims' injuries are not as severe. Firefighters put out the blaze less than an hour after the house exploded Wednesday afternoon. Investigators are looking into whether natural gas played a role in the blast.

No federal claims will be filed against Texas A&M for victims of the 1999 bonfire collapse that killed 12 people. A federal judge ruled Wednesday that governmental immunity applies to the school and school officials. The university and its employees are still named in several lawsuits filed in state court. The 59-foot-high log structure collapsed while students were getting ready for the big bonfire on the eve of A&M's football game against the University of Texas.
