Five years ago, a natural gas pipeline explosion devastated the small city of San Bruno, just south of San Francisco. The blast killed eight people, injured dozens more and destroyed 38 homes.

Yesterday, the California Public Utilities Commission fined the owner of the pipeline, Pacific Gas & Electric, a record $1.6 billion for the 2010 blast.

City of San Bruno City Manager Connie Jackson and survivor Sue Bullis, whose husband, son and mother-in-law were killed in the explosion, joined Take Two to share their reactions.
