SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) — Fire crews have fully contained the blaze ignited after a gas line ruptured and a massive fireball engulfed a Northern California neighborhood.

Four people have been confirmed dead in the Thursday night blast. Authorities still need to search about a quarter of the homes in the affected area of San Bruno.

Fire Chief Dennis Haag says some parts are still too hot to search. Homes continued to smolder Friday afternoon.

Police have cordoned off the burn areas, saying they're treating it like a crime scene until investigators can determine a cause of the explosion.
