On May 15, 2019, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) declared that the devastating November 2018 Camp Fire, which decimated thousands of structures and took 85 lives, was indeed started by Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) electrical transmission lines. The CAL FIRE report included details of two PG&E transmission lines that were knocked down, igniting the blaze. The utility company, which is currently going through federal bankruptcy, had set aside a $105 million relief fund for survivors (subject to approval by the bankruptcy court), but questions remain about PG&E’s role in the aftermath of the fire, including cleanup and additional financial assistance to fire victims.
