As if Paradise wasn't enough...

This from the LA Times:

Pacific Gas & Electric Co. said California investigators were looking at its equipment as a possible cause of a fire (Zog) that killed four people and burned more than 56,000 acres in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the northern part of the state.

The company emerged from bankruptcy this summer, having agreed to pay $25.5 billion to settle damage claims from a series of deadly fires blamed on its equipment. It also pleaded guilty to 84 counts of involuntary manslaughter over the 2018 Camp fire in Northern California, the deadliest corporate crime in U.S. history.

And this was after they'd cut the power in the foothills, in some cases for days and had rolling blackouts in other parts - which they applied without warning. I am so over this company, but it's got a monopoly in this area. Aaarrgghh!!!
