CAL FIRE Investigators Determine Butte Fire Caused By Tree Into PG&E Powerline

Posted by: thepinetree on 04/28/2016 01:54 PM
Sacramento – After a thorough investigation, CAL FIRE has determined that the 2015 Butte Fire was sparked by a tree that came into contact with a Pacific Gas & Electric Company powerline. Investigators were dispatched as part of the initial response to the Butte Fire and immediately began working to determine the origin and cause of the fire. The ensuing investigation uncovered evidence that contact between a tree and a PG&E powerline near Butte Mountain Road in Amador County sparked the fire on September 9, 2015. The fire burned for 22 days and spread into Calaveras County before the blaze was fully contained. The fire became the 7th most destructive wildfire in California’s history. Two civilians lost their lives and more than 900 structures were destroyed by the fire. At its peak, nearly 5,000 firefighters battled the blaze. Resources included 519 fire engines, 18 helicopters, 8 airtankers, 92 hand crews, 115 bulldozers, and 60 water tenders...
