The parents of a woman who was killed in the gas line explosion in San Bruno in September filed a wrongful death lawsuit against PG&E Wednesday.

The suit, filed by attorney John M. Feder of Rouda, Feder, Tietjen & McGuinn and Debra F. Bogaards Davis LLP, alleges that "negligence and ultrahazardous dangerous activity" on the part of PG&E led to the death of 20-year-old Jessica Morales.

On the night of the Sept. 9 explosion, Morales was visiting her boyfriend at his home at 1701 Earl St.

The fire that followed the explosion devoured the home and killed Morales, who was found the next morning in the shed of a neighboring home.

The explosion killed eight people and destroyed dozens of homes.
