Skylah Spradlin said she was outside enjoying the rainy weather and “talking to God” Monday afternoon, June 28, when she heard the explosion, which she described as resembling a gunshot.
But this noise was “super close” — behind her home — and louder than an ordinary gunshot, as Spradlin often hears firearms going off in her rural area on FM 2756, about two miles north of Farmersville.
The noise turned out to be a gasline explosion, one that killed two people and injured three others. Spradlin lives in a house near where the explosion occurred, in the 14700 block of 2756.
