    Worries about PG&E natural gas pipelines prompted officials to schedule a hearing Monday morning.

    This all comes after San Carlos officials said they learned about an unsafe pipeline by reading about in the newspaper, not hearing it from PG&E.

    PG&E workers e-mailed concerns that San Carlos could be vulnerable to an explosion, similar to the one that rocked San Bruno three years ago.
