Washington Hearing Possible On San Bruno Explosion

SAN BRUNO (AP) — Federal investigators may subpoena witnesses to testify in Washington about the deadly Pacific Gas & Electric Co. natural gas pipeline explosion in San Bruno.

National Transportation Safety Board member Mark Rosekind says board members voted during the weekend whether to hold a hearing on the Sept. 9 explosion and fire that killed eight people and destroyed 37 homes. Rosekind says results of that vote will be announced soon.

Rosekind was one of several speakers at a Sunday town hall meeting at the San Bruno Senior Center. Some residents pushed for more information on the safety board’s investigation.

The NTSB disclosed last week that PG&E was unaware that the segment of the ruptured gas pipeline had a weld along its spine known as a seam weld.
