PG&E To Establish Fire Survivors Fund

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. has received approval to establish a $105 million fund to help survivors of recent California wildfires started by the utility’s power lines. A federal judge overseeing PG&E’s bankruptcy case approved the utility’s wildfire assistance program Wednesday. Lawyers for wildfire victims argued PG&E could pay up to $250 million to adequately help people who lost property during 2017 and 2018 fires.
