Cal Fire investigators say P.G.& E.’s equipment is to blame for last November’s deadly Camp Fire in Butte County. Investigators have pinpointed the utility’s owned and operated electrical transmission lines in the community of Pulga as the catalyst for sparking the blaze.  The Camp Fire burned through more than 153-thousand acres, killed 85 people, and destroyed more than 18-thousand structures.
