Colonial Motel Gas Explosion 1965

Looking for information on the Colonial Motel gas explosion on July 1, 1965. I can not find anything on it. William A Elder of Houston was staying at the motel at the time of the explosion and suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 92% of his body. He taken back back down south for medical treatment but died a few days later. I also found that his widow filed suit against the motel.

I am looking for news from the Longview area about the explosion, that my have more details about the event.

Thank you
