San Bruno Continues to Rebuild 3 Years After Deadly Explosion

Monday marked the three-year anniversary since the deadly pipeline explosion that rocked San Bruno and killed eight people.

A memorial was scheduled in San Bruno Monday evening to remember those who lost their lives.

The PG&E pipeline explosion destroyed 38 homes and some of the victims have spent the last three years rebuilding.

However, some of the victims decided they didn't want to come back to this neighborhood. More than a dozen lots remain empty in the neighborhood, and some property has been sold to the city, officials said.

"It's not the same. It's build almost the same," resident Nancy Hensel said. "My husband wanted to build it the same. But you can't build it the same."
