Californians Endure Fires And Power Outages, All Caused By The Same Company

Pacific Gas & Electric Co.

Power lines have caused numerous wildfires over the past six years.

Over 1,500 California wildfires to be exact, including the deadliest blaze in the state's history.

Many critics accuse PG&E of prioritizing profits over safety measures for decades.

According to Business Insider, the company has filed for bankruptcy.

They've also cut power to millions of Californians to keep power lines from sparking in dry, windy conditions.

PG&E CEO Bill Johnson said Californians should expect these types of preemptive outages for another 10 years.

Hospitals are scrambling to find refrigerators for medications, and seniors were left alone in the dark.

Many Californians think they should never have been faced with the choice between days-long blackouts and deadly fires.
