We filed a lawsuit against PG&E alleging the 2017 North Bay Wildfires were ignited by sparking PG&E power lines that came into contact with nearby vegetation, and further that PG&E failed to take appropriate steps to prevent fire in considering local conditions, utilizing power lines, and maintaining surrounding trees and vegetation. While Cal Fire investigators have yet to rule on an official cause, they are looking into reports of downed power lines, arcing wires, and transformer problems. Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has admitted the "destructive winds, along with millions of trees weakened by years of drought and recent renewed vegetation growth from winter storms, all contributed to some trees, branches and debris impacting [their] electrical lines across the North Bay." Rules and regulations require that PG&E maintain proper clearance between vegetation and high voltage power lines.
