CAL FIRE found PG&E to be the cause of California’s deadliest and most destructive fire in the state’s history. Investigators determined that PG&E’s electrical transmission lines caused the Camp Fire. Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama) issued the following statement:
“This finding is not a surprise. This conclusion by CAL FIRE investigators was anticipated.
“Survivors of the Camp Fire are putting their lives back together. Six months after the fire, many continue to go through the rubbles to savage remnants of their memories. The people of Butte County are hopeful and resilient.
“Together, we must proceed to put the community back, and PG & E must be a responsible participant in this rebuild effort.”
