Thomas Fire Lawsuit Against Southern California Edison

Investigators determined that failing power lines, owned and operated by Southern California Edison, caused the deadly Thomas Fire on December 4, 2017. They concluded that SCE power lines in the upper Anlauf Canyon area slapped against each other, sending molten metal particles onto dry vegetation below and sparking a blaze that would ultimately converge with another fire that began a short time later at nearby Koeningstein Road.
