Butte Fire Victims
Did You Lose Property In The Butte Fire?
The Butte Fire started on September 9, 2015. Until the fire was contained on October 1, 2015, it burned more than 70,000 acres, destroyed approximately 550 homes, 360 outbuildings and other structures, killed two people, and injured many others.
The Butte Fire is the seventh most destructive fire in California's history. And it could have been prevented.
Power companies have a legal obligation to maintain vegetation around power lines. This is especially important in times of drought when the risk of fire is high. When trees or other objects fall onto or come into contact with power lines, the results can be catastrophic.
Airola Law Offices, and five other law firms, have filed a lawsuit against Pacific Gas & Electric, and its contractors, for their alleged role in causing the Butte Fire.
