A series of catastrophic events followed the 1994 Northridge earthquake. In Granada Hills, in the middle of the 11600 block of Balboa Boulevard, a ruptured gas main burns behind a giant crater caused by the earthquake. Several homes adjacent to where the gas line ruptured exploded and were burned to the ground.
