A woman and her three dogs narrowly escaped injury when their home exploded in West Fort Worth Sunday morning.

Paige Pauley said she was fixing breakfast in her kitchen when she heard and felt the blast come from the other end of the house where her bedroom sits.

The explosion blew through the walls. It sent furniture and other items flying. She was even blown back a few feet.

"I thought 'oh my God' my house just blew up," Pauley said. "My biggest concern was that there was smoke everywhere and I didn't know what was on fire, so I just got out."

Pauley and her dogs Cassidy, Buster and Oliver evacuated.
