Six children have been taken to a hospital after a gasoline explosion in McKinney, near Dallas.

A representative for the McKinney Fire Department says the children were camping out in a backyard when one of the children poured gasoline on a small fire. Adults were inside the home at the time and believe the six children may have been left unsupervised in the backyard. The children range in age from 4 to 11 years old.
