PG&E Equipment “Probable” Cause of Camp Fire, Victims Will Be Paid

NCFL Attorney Mike Danko appeared on Kron 4 with some welcome news for Camp Fire victims:

If you are a Camp Fire survivor and you thought ‘I guess I am out of luck because PG&E filed bankruptcy,’ well this is saying, no you are not out of luck… Good news, PG&E has money and it is reserving it just for you.

PG&E has admitted that its equipment was the “probable” cause of the 2018 Camp Fire, after firefighters’ investigations pointed to an area near a power tower on the utility’s Caribou-Palermo transmission line as the ignition point of the blaze.

PG&E acknowledged that the line lost power just before the fire broke out, and later disclosed that it had been damaged. PG&E has yet to acknowledge that their negligence played a role in the fire, but setting $14 billion dollars aside for victims’ damages is a start. Our attorneys intend to keep litigating the cases until victims receive justice.
