cow PG&E power lines linked to Wine Country fires

In all, according to a review of emergency radio traffic by the Bay Area News Group, Sonoma County dispatchers sent out fire crews to at least 10 different locations across the county over a 90-minute period starting at 9:22 pm to respond to 911 calls and other reports of sparking wires and problems with the county’s electrical system amid high winds.
State fire officials said Tuesday that they are still investigating the cause of the blazes, which as of late Tuesday had killed 17 people and destroyed more than 2,000 homes in Sonoma, Napa and other Northern California counties.

But the reports of the power equipment failures began to turn the spotlight on PG&E, the giant San Francisco-based utility, raising questions about how well it maintained its equipment in the area and whether it adequately cut back trees from power lines to reduce fire risk — as required by state law.

Did North Korea hack the power and that's what started the fires?

the crazy high wind gusts caused branches to break off into power lines carrying sparks into uber tall dry grasses. wah-lah

also there were reports of a poorly maintained generator shorting out and causing one fire.

there is too much maintenance in keeping trees away from the lines when the wind can carry a branch several yards from the top of a tall tree.

you should see all the dead and dying huge trees on the west coast.

it's lit to pop

Power lines were determined to be the cause in Texas state's #1 largest fire ever - the Bastrop fire.

They are often cited as the source, even more often than arsonist volunteer firemen who wanted some recognition.
