CA Utility Guilty Of Involuntary Manslaughter In Fire

The Daily Beast reports:

Pacific Gas & Electric will plead guilty to felony involuntary manslaughter charges for its role in starting the deadly Camp Fire in California two years ago, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The Camp Fire, which claimed the lives of 85 people, was the most destructive and deadly wildfire in state history.

An indictment in Butte County charged the company with 84 counts of manslaughter and one count of unlawfully causing a fire. A grand jury concluded that one person died by suicide as the fire closed in, resulting in the 84 manslaughter counts.
