An eight-year-old girl remains in critical condition after Saturday's explosion at a house in North Richland Hills.

Atmos Energy is investigating the blast in the 7900 block of Harwood Road and is performing safety tests on its pipelines in the neighborhood.

Natural gas service remains shut down near the scene.

Family members said Maya Javier turned on the bathroom light just before the explosion happened. She suffered burns over 40 percent of her body.

If you smell a natural gas odor in your home or neighborhood, Atmos advises you to leave the area immediately and call 911 and Atmos to report a possible leak.
