Half a year after the Camp Fire killed 85 people and razed more than 150,000 acres in Northern California, investigators have determined that it was sparked by PG&E-controlled electrical transmission lines in the community of Pulga.
The fire killed 85 people, destroyed 15,000 homes and another 4,000 businesses and other structures.
"The Camp Fire is the deadliest and most destructive fire in California history", Cal Fire said in a statement on Wednesday.
Cal Fire did not release its full investigative report, saying it had been forwarded to the Butte County district attorney's office, which is considering filing criminal charges against the utility. Bill Johnson told the state Assembly Utilities and Energy Committee he had expected the utility would be blamed for the fire. The Newsom administration also notes that the extension would span the 2019 fire season, when the company should be working to ensure its equipment does not spark new fires.
In the report, CAL FIRE officials said the Camp Fire blaze was sparked by transmission lines that came into contact with dry vegetation at two different locations outside of Chico, California.
This finding is not a surprise.
Investigators say the original fire that started near Pulga consumed the second blaze.
Jones says "it's nice to have a definite answer" about the cause of the blaze that decimated the town.
