On September 9, 2010  a 30-inch diameter natural gas transmission pipeline (Line 132) owned and operated by Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) ruptured in a residential area in San Bruno, California.  The fire killed 8 people, destroyed 37 homes and damaged another 18 homes in the blast vicinity.  Excerpts from the National Transportation Safety Board's "Preliminary Report" says:
The rupture on Line 132 occurred near mile post (MP) 39.33, at the intersection of Earl Avenue and Glenview Drive in the city of San Bruno. Approximately 47.6 million standard cubic feet (MMSCF) of natural gas was released as a result of the rupture. The rupture created a crater approximately 72 feet long by 26 feet wide. A pipe segment approximately 28 feet long was found about 100 feet away from the crater.  The released natural gas was ignited sometime after the rupture; the resulting fire destroyed 37 homes and damaged 18. Eight people were killed, numerous individuals were injured, and many more were evacuated from the area. 
We would not want to own a home within the blast zone at any price and would try to avoid homes close to the pipeline that are at risk of destruction from a fire.
