On 9th September 2010 an unbelievable natural gas pipeline explosion happened at the rural area of San Bruno in California.

Today the video footage of an surveillance security camera from a nearby Gas station which caught the fire blast of this San Bruno, California Natural Gas pipeline explosion has been published by Associated Press - This is the first footage after the 30-inch diameter PG&E Corp. Gas pipeline explosion happened.



The Gas explosion did cost 8 persons their lives (as of 30th September - more updates at the end of the post). Over 50 houses are inhabitable or destroyed, around 300 houses have little or no damage.
PG&E Corp. did setup a relief fund with $100 million to support residents and city facilities (not included claims for injuries or wrongful death).

First live videos reports of the Gas pipe explosion (9th September 20 - 30 minutes after the explosion happened) taken from a Chopper concluded that it was most likely a plane crash that caused the fires in an entire neighborhood of San Bruno (CBS NEWS).
