CAMPBELL (CBS SF) — Two girls suffered minor injuries when a built-in barbecue pit exploded in the backyard of a Campbell home on Wednesday night, a Santa Clara County fire battalion chief said.

Fire crews responded to the explosion in the 800 block of Briarwood Way sometime around 10:15 p.m., Battalion Chief Wally Finck said.

Six girls were sitting around the barbecue pit running on natural gas when it exploded sending debris around the backyard, Finck said.

The explosion did not start a fire and did not damage any exposures.

Two girls with burns were transported to a hospital for minor injuries, according to Finck.

The other four girls in the backyard were picked up by their parent.

The cause of the explosion is under investigation.
