Cal Fire Report Faults PG&E for Camp Fire

Cal Fire has determined that equipment managed by Pacific Gas and Electric, caused the wildfire that killed 85 people in Butte County.  The Camp Fire burned more than 153-thousand acres and destroyed more than 18-thousand structures last November.  It’s the deadliest and most destructive fire in California history.  CAL Fire investigators say PG&E transmission lines sparked two separate fires in that area, which then merged. PG&E filed for bankruptcy protection in January, due to billions of dollars in claims tied to other destructive wildfires – including the Sulphur fire that burned in Clearlake and Clearlake Oaks in the fall of 2017, and the Redwood fire in Mendocino County in October 2017.
