Just after 6 p.m. Thursday, an explosion and fireball erupted from near the intersection near Glenview Drive and Earl Avenue. People as far as one-half mile away say they felt the boom and heat of the explosion.

PG&E confirms a 24-inch high-pressure natural gas line was the source of the explosion and fire. There has been no word on what caused the pipe to rupture.

Fires were still burning Friday morning. At least 53 homes were destroyed and 120 more were damaged. Dozens of people were injured and taken to local hospitals
