LATEST UPDATE: August 19, 2019:
According to a Wall Street Journal Article in July 2019, PG&E acknowledged that it knew that its power lines were at risk of failing due to years of backlogged repairs and maintenance.
California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection investigators have not yet publicly concluded who caused the Tubbs fire. Tubbs was the worst of the wine country fires, killing 22 people and destroying more than 5,000 homes. Cal Fire investigators have already linked PG&E’s power lines and power transformers to the other wine country fires including the Atlas fire, the Redwood Valley fire and others.
The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection is still investigating by retracing the fire’s path of destruction and gathering all documentary materials to determine who started the fire. Because the width and breadth of the fire was so large it is taking a great deal of time, reports a Cal Fire spokesperson.
Issues in which fire investigators are studying are the multiple ignition points of the fire (being mapped out), a timeline, fuel types that had been burned through, the topography the fire spread across and weather conditions. Aerial drones and aerial photography have been used.
We believe that certain electrical equipment which fire investigators seized may have caused the fire and PG&E’s failure to properly trim trees near power lines caused the limbs once lit to fall onto the equipment, further sparking the blaze.
Additionally, the power lines that were placed in the Tubbs fire area were not insulated nor placed underground. Wood poles were used for cost effective reasons which led to and contributed to the firestorms.
In three other fires, Cal Fire determined that PG&E violated various municipal and state codes concerning vegetation clearance around PG&E’s equipment. We intend on holding PG&E responsible for all of the wildfires as, at the very minimum, these fires were fueled by powerful winds which caused power lines to snap and spark the blazes, causing additional blazes at multiple angles and directions for the fire to proceed.
