NORTHEAST TRAVIS COUNTY  --  Near Manor Rd., repairs continue two days after a natural gas explosion damaged a home and left hundreds without heat.

Saturday, the owners of a home that went up in flames Thursday continue to sort through the rubble.

We knocked on several doors in this neighborhood, and they all said their gas was back on as of Friday night or Saturday morning.

However, we do not know if all 900 homes that were without gas are back on, because Texas Community Propane has not given us an official word.

Three adults and two children are now displaced.

Firefighters say the homeowner called to report a gas leak.

Two Texas Community Propane workers were on site during the explosion and suffered burns.
While the gas is back on some neighbors say it hasn't been an easy past couple of days.

"It's a big inconvience. Especially when they tell you we don't know when, but somebody has to be there. So we just wait," said neighbor Lesley Reyes. 

The cause of the gas leak and the explosion is still unknown.
