CLEBURNE, Texas (AP) -- A minor earthquake has been reported in a small North Texas town -- but there were no reports of damage or injuries.
   The U.G. Geologicial Survey says a 2.8-magnitude earthquake hit the small town of Cleburne just after 3 p.m. Tuesday.
   People in Cleburne reported hearing a loud boom and felt the ground shake, sending firefighters and police officers scrambling to find the source before they learned it was a minor quake.
   Last month, a 3.3-magnitude quake hit Euless. People in several other Dallas suburbs reported feeling walls and furniture of their homes and businesses shake in that quake.
   No one reported damage or injuries in that incident either.
