 NTSB Launches Team to Investigate Apparent Gas Pipeline Explosion in California

The National Transportation Safety Board has launched a Go Team to investigate last night's explosion and fire in a California neighborhood that appears to be related to a natural gas pipeline.

Local authorities in San Bruno, California, report that dozens of homes were destroyed in the accident.  The extent of injuries and possible fatalities is still being assessed.

Ravi Chhatre will serve as Investigator-in-Charge for the 4-member team from the NTSB.  The Board's Vice Chairman, Christopher Hart, is accompanying the team and will serve as principal spokesman for the on-scene investigation.
