Witnesses say a loud explosion was felt just before the flames erupted around 6 p.m. Thursday.

 

The fire is burning in a mostly residential area a few miles from San Francisco International Air, but the Federal Aviation Administration and a spokesman for the airport say they have no record of a plane crash.
