SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger got a close look at the site of the massive gas line explosion in a San Francisco suburb.

The governor returned from a weeklong trade mission to Asia on Wednesday, and his first official stop was the San Bruno neighborhood where nearly 40 homes were destroyed and at least four people were killed last week.

Authorities say three people who lived yards from the blast source are still missing.

Speaking from a vantage point overlooking a massive crater and destroyed homes, Schwarzenegger credited emergency personnel and others for what he termed their "quick action" in responding to the explosion and fire.

The governor also said he spoke to President Barack Obama by telephone and requested a federal disaster declaration.
