Two cars smolder after a giant fire from a gas pipe explosion swept through a neighborhood in San Bruno on Sept. 9, 2010.

More than 100 people are being sheltered at nearby evacuation centers, but no estimate of the number of residents missing was available, according to San Bruno Fire Chief Dennis Haag.
