SAN FRANCISCO (CBS) – The San Francisco Fire Department responded to a manhole explosion in San Francisco’s Financial District Saturday. The blast was strong enough to shatter windows in nearby businesses.
It happened on Sansome Street between Clay and California.
PG&E trucks were on the scene. One witness said he smelled smoke and saw flames.
According to PG&E it was an underground ‘secondary failure’. One firefighter CBS 5 spoke to said it was an electric vault that blew.
So far, there are no reports of any injuries.
