Two men suffered serious burns in a house explosion in Carmarthenshire.
The pair were taken to Morriston Hospital in Swansea after the explosion at a house in Hafod Road, Tycroes, at around 16:20 BST on Monday.
The house next door was evacuated and the A483 was closed as a precaution following the blast.
Dyfed-Powys Police are investigating the cause along with Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service and the Health and Safety Executive.
It took fire crews until 20:00 BST to put the fire out and the house was extensively damaged.
On Tuesday, a Wales and West Utilities spokesman said an investigation uncovered no evidence of any gas leaks or damage to the gas mains in the area.
But said due to the damage to the house, engineers have not yet been able to go inside to inspect the internal pipework.
