Pacific Gas & Electric could be the first company to access a wildfire liability fund established by the state over two years ago, intended to keep utilities solvent after causing major wildfires.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company officials said they expect to lose more than $1 billion as a result of the Dixie Fire.

The utility has announced that it’s been subpoenaed by the U.S. attorney for documents related to the largest non-complex fire in California history.

Victims from the nearly 1 million-acre Dixie fire still burning in Northern California have sued Pacific Gas & Electric amid suspicions that the utility’s equipment may have sparked the blaze that has reduced more than 1,300 homes to rubble.

Gerald Singleton, an attorney for the victims, estimates that the blaze — the second-largest in California history — has affected thousands, from those who lost multigenerational homes to others whose businesses were destroyed.
