CORPUS CHRISTI – Two men are still in critical condition after a home exploded on Holmes street. Around 5:30 a.m. Friday an explosion shook the 4800 block of Holmes.
The home that exploded had a family of four. Officials say three family members were on vacation, but the father of the home was there. He was thrown out into the park across the street when the home exploded.
His next door neighbor was smoking a cigarette at the time. He says that is all he remembers when he was blown into his backyard.
