In the news again today, McKinney this time is being recognized for having a gas line explosion causing fire and injuring a couple construction workers.

It happened at approximately 8:45 a.m. this morning, where flames were reported as being seen at least 15 miles away.

McKinney is located north of Dallas in Collin County (about 30 miles), and as of press time, about 1,000 people are still without power.
