SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) - Homes are being destroyed as a massive fire roars through a mostly residential neighborhood in a south San Francisco suburb.
The fire in San Bruno is burning in a hillside area a few miles from San Francisco International Airport, sparking speculation that the fire was sparked by a plane crash. But a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration says the agency has no record of any plane crash. A spokesman for the airport also said there was no report of a plane down.
Television live shots show at least a dozen homes destroyed, with flames reaching as high as 60 feet in the air as the fire fuels itself on the burning homes.
Witnesses say a loud explosion was felt just before the flames erupted around 6 p.m. Thursday.
