Texas Motel Explosion Injures Three

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - An explosion left three people hurt and destroyed part of a Corpus Christi motel near the Texas State Aquarium.

Fire Marshal Andy Cardiel says the investigation is focusing on natural gas lines.

Officials say the blast Thursday injured an employee of the Aquarium Inn, a delivery driver and a Texas State Aquarium parking lot attendant.

Lot worker Rudy Noriega says he suffered cuts on his arms from flying glass. Details on injuries to the other two people were not immediately available.

Calls on Friday by The Associated Press to the Aquarium Inn rang unanswered.

American Red Cross spokeswoman Sherry Bowers says help is being offered to more than a dozen now-displaced residents of the motel, including workers painting the Harbor Bridge.
