I have no idea how well PG&E maintains their equipment, lines, etc. but I do know lawyers are always looking from someone with deep pockets to blame.

Apparently, one woman's backyard power pole may have started the whole thing, near Paradise. Sparks onto the ground. And PG&E knew about it. For a long time.

Relevant to this - https://www.nbcnews.com/business/bus...killer-n935571

Seems PG&E had an issue on a line right where the fire started. One heck of a coincidence.

This is about the CAMP FIRE in northern California. 48 civilian fatalities and hundreds of people unaccounted for. Structures Destroyed: 7,600 residences, 260 commercial. Acres Burned -130,000 acres. Containment: 35%

You know you're a Californian when one of your highest bookmarks is the link to current CA fires.

Looks like the Woolsey fire started at/near a PG&E substation - https://www.psr-la.org/massive-wools...tial-meltdown/

The NBC link in the original post indicated a political topic. If it is not a political thread we can move it back to main Vintage.
