The Mosquito Fire was one of the largest fires on record for the 2022 wildfire season. It has caused millions of dollars in damages to people and property across Northern California and has left many wondering who is responsible for it.
Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) admitted it experienced an equipment failure in the area shortly before the fire began, leading some to believe that a spark from this failure may have triggered a blaze that hit nearby dry vegetation. If found guilty, a wildfire attorney can help recover compensation for losses and hold PG&E accountable for its role in these events.
The Role of PG&E in Wildfires
In recent years, PG&E has been found liable in numerous wildfires throughout California due to equipment failures or mismanagement of power lines near vulnerable vegetation. Since 2017, PG&E has been responsible for over 30 fires across California, with damages totaling over $10 billion. Despite knowing about these dangers and taking steps to mitigate them, PG&E still failed to maintain their equipment correctly, leading to these devastating results.
