DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A Dallas family whose house exploded in February of last year is suing Atmos Energy for more than $1 million. 

David Lemus says the explosion left him with burns to his face that took more than 6 months to heal. 

His home was destroyed in the blast. 

He claims he called Atmos several times to complain about gas smells before the explosion but says Atmos kept telling him there was no problem. 

Two days after the explosion at Lemus' house another explosion in the neighborhood  killed a 12-year-old girl.
