After Cupertino Blast, PG&E Tries to Reassure Residents

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

Investigators are looking into the explosion of a leaky PG&E gas line that destroyed a condominium in Cupertino.

No one was hurt in Thursday's blast, which happened just 15 minutes after the owner had left the condo for lunch.

PG&E examined a two-inch plastic pipe feeding smaller gas lines in and around the condo. Officials told the San Francisco Chronicle they found a total of seven leaks.

The explosion happened just one day after the National Transportation Safety Board issued its scathing assessment of PG&E's handling of gas line safety.
