Kershaw Cook & Talley is well-known for our work in representing the victims of California wildfires. After 2018’s devastating Camp Fire, we took on Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) on behalf of those affected. We proudly helped client after client recover their full compensation through aggressive legal advocacy. Now, we are taking on PG&E again, this time over the Dixie Fire.

How Did the Dixie Fire Start?
The official cause of the Dixie Fire is currently under investigation, but there is strong evidence that PG&E was involved.
The Dixie Fire started July 13, 2021, which was also the same day that a PG&E employee was dispatched to investigate a report of a power outage at Cresta Dam off Highway 70. Per a report filed with the state, the employee found a tree leaning into a conductor with blown fuses—and a fire at the base of the tree. PG&E stated that its power equipment may have been responsible for starting not only the Dixie Fire but also the Fly Fire, a small fire that later merged with the Dixie Fire.
PG&E Must Be Held Accountable
The sad truth is that news of the “largest wildfire in state history” has become the norm in California. To date, PG&E has been found to be responsible for well over 1,500 fires in the past 6 years, including the Camp Fire and the Kincade Fire. Something needs to be done. That’s why we are fighting to hold PG&E accountable on behalf of those affected by the Dixie Fire.
