Federal disaster officials have again denied a request for millions of dollars in aid for the city ravaged last month by a deadly natural gas pipeline explosion that killed eight people and destroyed 35 homes. State officials got word Thursday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency had turned down an appeal from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger from an earlier denial of federal aid for San Bruno, California Emergency Management Agency official Tom Maruyama said.
