Officials have continued to praise the response of emergency personnel during the explosion at Coryell Memorial Hospital on Tuesday. 

Officials from Coryell Memorial Hospital said that within 5 minutes, the building was nearly empty. They said that they had moved over 100 people within an hour, and they were all in beds shortly after.

Staff was helping pull patients from the rubble. Central Texas News Now was able to obtain the scanner feed from Broadcastify.

Agencies from all over Texas responded to help law enforcement on scene. They took other calls in the city and county to relieve Gatesville and Coryell County law enforcement, so they could focus their efforts on the explosion.

The Texas Fire Marshals are now leading the investigation. One man died and 15 others were injured in the explosion
