September 9, 2010 | 8:50 pm PST

As flames continued to rage out of control in San Bruno, fire crews from outlying cities and agencies were responding to help fight the massive blaze that has left at least nine people burned and destroyed a number of homes.

Four air-tankers, two smaller attack planes and 25 fire engines from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection were headed to the blaze, the agency said.

Off-duty firefighters, some of them without their protective gear, were battling the blaze alongside overwhelmed crews from the small San Bruno Fire Department, according to news reports.

Huge orange balls of flames were billowing into the nighttime sky. Residents reported a huge shake, as if an earthquake struck when the blaze broke out.

The radiant heat from the flames could be felt several blocks away, according to residents.
