San Bruno, California (CNN) - California's largest utility could face a hefty fine for a deadly 2010 gas pipeline explosion.
Regulators recommended pacific gas and electric pay 2-point-25 billion dollars.
The explosion killed eight people and destroyed 38 homes in san bruno.
It also left behind a 72-foot by 26-foot crater in the middle of the neighborhood.
