    Minute after the Explosion


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     camposs95 says he drove within two to three blocks of an explosion that engulfed a San Bruno, California, neighborhood hoping to help the people running through the streets. "It sounded like a big ongoing roar,"camposs95 said. "A lot of us were confused because we didn’t know if it was a natural gas explosion or an airplane crash." Dozens of homes were destroyed during the fire. CNN affiliate KGO is reporting that an evacuation center has been set up and the Red Cross is providing aid to residents.

    Right after the explosion I pulled over to see if I could help anyone, but the flames were too intense to get any closer. People were confused and frustrated; they didnt know wether to run in to help or run away to avoid the heat and anymore explosions.
