CAL FIRE Investigators Determine PG&E Not the Cause of the Tubbs Fire

Sacramento, CA...After an extensive and thorough investigation, CAL FIRE has determined the Tubbs Fire, which occurred during the October 2017 Fire Siege, was caused by a private electrical system adjacent to a residential structure. CAL FIRE investigators did not identify any violations of state law, Public Resources Code, related to the cause of this fire.




The Tubbs Fire in Sonoma County started on the evening of October 8th, 2017 and burned a total of 36,807 acres. Destroying 5,636 structures and resulting in 22 civilian fatalities and one firefighter injury. In total, the October 2017 Fire Siege involved more than 170 fires and burned at least 245,000 acres in Northern California. Approximately 11,000 firefighters from 17 states and Australia helped battle the blazes.

CAL FIRE investigators are dispatched with the initial attack resources to the wildfires in CAL FIRE jurisdiction and immediately begin working to determine their origin and cause. Californians must remain vigilant and take on the responsibility to be prepared for wildfire at any time throughout the year. For more information on how to be prepared,

visit www.readyforwildfire.org or www.fire.ca.gov.

    Tick n Tock goes the Clock to see if we get Executive Order National Emergency #32 or not. We have 31 National Emergency Executive Orders active at this time dating back to the Carter Era.
    Step on the crack and break the Democrat's back.

    Hi, I grew up here and love trees, please vote for me AGAIN next time I run for congress. You are all my people
    I love this great country we live in, and the water and little birdies, don't believe anyone who says
    I live in a condo in Washington DC. (that's just my office, I'm very busy spending my money in my trust fund)
    and really grew up in Carmichael, that's a lie, I just visited there 362 or 363 days a year. My real home is here, you know, like where ever you are.
    Thank you all who supported me, but please vote for me so I can be supported by my fellow tax
    payers for the rest of my life. I really want to be your friend and love the idea of getting free medical and everything for my entire life if elected.
    Please remember that I think climate change is an important issue because it changes our climate and things.
    I also now know more about forestry and trees and things like that and I'm getting gooder and that next time
    when I have a debate with Tom I'll show him a thing or two (like my nipples someone here mentioned) I
    really really want to be your gal, and friend in Congress.

    Thank you

    Sincerely

    You best friend, The Carpet Bagger
