    PG&E reports second power line problem before Camp Fire. Paradise residents file lawsuits

    A week after reporting a power-line outage near where the Camp Fire is suspected of starting, Pacific Gas & Electric said in a regulatory filing that it suffered a second problem with a high voltage line the morning the devastating fire ignited.

    The Camp Fire, which is still burning, is now the deadliest in California state history, so far killing 76 people and destroying more than 12,000 buildings — the majority homes.

    PG&E has been hit with numerous lawsuits in the last year stemming from major wildfires believed to be caused by power line issues.
