SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A Northern California city is asking the state to force Pacific Gas & Electric Co. to release tens of thousands of emails between the state’s largest utility and state regulators.

The San Francisco-area suburb of San Bruno filed the requests Monday with the state. San Bruno is asking officials to compel PG&E; to release 65,000 emails between the utility and the California Public Utilities Commission. The request stems from a 2010 PG&E; pipeline explosion that killed eight people in San Bruno. San Bruno city officials charge cozy relations between the utility and state regulators contributed to the blast.

PG&E; spokesman Keith Stephens responded to San Bruno’s filing by saying the utility will comply with any request from regulatory officials.
