PG&E Agrees to a $125 Million Settlement for the 2019 Kincade Fire

Pacific Gas & Electric reached a $125 million settlement with California's energy regulator Tuesday over the 2019 Kincade Fire, which burned more than 77,000 acres, destroyed hundreds of homes and injured four people in Sonoma County.

The California Public Utilities Commission said in a statement the proposed settlement would address "multiple violations" that its safety and enforcement division found — notably a worn power line that investigators said "failed" and broke off a transmission tower during the blaze.

PG&E is facing 33 criminal charges over the October 2019 wildfire, which Cal Fire also concluded was caused by a jumper cable on a PG&E transmission tower that broke amid high winds.
