In spectacular fashion, PG&E blasted the remains of its old power plant at Rosedale Highway on Saturday morning to cheering spectators. Hundreds, if not thousands, turned out early Saturday morning to see the spectacle of the power plant imploded. This video was taken from our live video stream and reflected some of the reaction to the blasts.

It quickly became clear that one man suffered major injuries from flying shrapnel, and several other people suffered cuts.
