Since it began on September 9, 2015, the Butte Fire has destroyed more than 360 homes and burned over 70,000 acres in Amador and Calaveras Counties. While Cal Fire investigators have yet to rule on an official cause, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has admitted that a tree may have come in contact with a PG&E line in the vicinity of the ignition point. Rules and regulations require that PG&E maintain proper clearance between vegetation and high voltage power lines.
