    More than a year later after the San Bruno pipeline explosion, the scars still remain. Friday one of the biggest memories still visible of the accident will go away.

    San Bruno city officials said Friday that the crater caused by last year's deadly pipeline explosion will be filled in next week.

    A PG&E natural gas pipeline exploded in the city's Crestmoor Canyon neighborhood on Sept. 9, 2010, with the blast and resulting fire killing eight people, injuring dozens of others and destroying 38
    houses.
       
    The blast also left a large hole in the ground that has remained in the neighborhood, whose residents last week marked the one-year anniversary of the disaster with a remembrance ceremony at Skyline College.
       
    But city officials said Friday that the crater will be filled in next week, saying more details about the project will be released later on Friday.
