WEIRD, I WAS TOLD IT WAS CAUSED BY GLOBAL WARMING. AND TRUMP. PG&E Caused Fire That Killed 85, California Concludes. Investigators find company’s equipment sparked deadliest fire in state history, after PG&E said it was probably the cause.

California investigators on Wednesday said they found that PG&E Corp.’s equipment sparked the deadliest wildfire in state history, putting additional pressure on a company already facing billions of dollars in potential liability costs.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection determined that a PG&E transmission line near the town of Pulga sparked the fire, which spread quickly across dry vegetation in the forested foothills of the Sierra Nevada. They also determined a second point of ignition where vegetation blew into the company’s electric distribution lines, starting another fire that was consumed by the first one.

The agency’s conclusion ends months of speculation about PG&E’s role in the massive blaze, which killed 85 people and destroyed the town of Paradise last November.

Go figure.
