SAN BRUNO, Calif., Sept. 23 (UPI) -- California's Pacific Gas & Electric said a natural gas pipeline ruptured 4 miles from the San Bruno neighborhood where a 2010 gas blast killed eight people.

Construction crews broke through the 2-inch pipeline Sunday evening KTVU, San Francisco, reported.

No injuries were reported and no evacuations were ordered, the broadcaster said.

In 2010, an explosion in a PG&E natural gas pipeline killed eight people and damaged more than three dozen homes in San Bruno.

The National Transportation Safety Board, in its investigation into the 2010 disaster, said PG&E didn't know what kind of pipe was beneath San Bruno. A defective weld seam on the pipeline was blamed for that explosion.
