Lieff Cabraser’s fire injury lawyers are investigating reports that Southern California Edison reported a “disturbance” in a circuit as well as outages near the Woolsey fire just two minutes before the fire began. SoCal Edison submitted a report to the Public Utilities Commission to alert it to the event, which could be connected causally with the fire. The fire, which broke out on November 8, 2018, has burned over 98,000 acres of land, killed at least 3 people, and destroyed at least 500 buildings and other structures in an area that is now approximately the size of the city of Denver. The fire was named the Woolsey Fire because of its origination point near Woolsey Canyon Road in Ventura County.
Our thoughts and our hearts go out to our neighbors, colleagues, and friends in northern California, especially those who have lost their lives, homes, and businesses in this newest series of horrific fires.
It is with deep gratitude that we recognize the safety personnel and first responders working tirelessly to bring the fires under control and provide aid during this extremely difficult time throughout the affected areas.
