After recently discovering PG&E documents which confirm the company knew about the potential for equipment failure that ultimately caused the 2018 Camp Fire, NCFL Attorney Mike Danko told KRON4:
“It disgusts me the entire company and corporation they are convicted felons and they have no regard for human life or safety…What these documents tell us is that PG&E knew that all the J-hooks on the line were corroded and at risk of failing and what PG&E did instead of replace the hooks is ‘lets treat them carefully and hope when they do fail it happens during a rainstorm so if there is a fire it is extinguished by the rain.’”
