"It was originally thought that four people died in the San Bruno gas line explosion on Thursday. On Saturday, teams of dogs and search parties made further exploration into the area devastated by the explosion and found that seven people were dead. Another six residents are missing.
When the gas line exploded Thursday afternoon, it created a crater that is 167 feet long and 26 feet wide. About 28 feet of the pipe was blown about 100 feet away."
