PG&E Fined $1.4 Billion For 2010 Pipeline Explosion

PG&E will have to pay nearly one and a half billion dollars for the deadly gas pipeline explosion in San Bruno. California regulators slapped PG&E with the fine after the fiery disaster left eight people dead back in 2010.

The explosion and fire also destroyed 38 homes.

Investigators say PG&E was deficient in the managing its pipelines.

PG&E reps called the penalty "appropriate."

But the company could still face even more penalties if convicted of pending federal charges.
