On June 8, 2018, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection announced it determined that 12 Northern California wildfires in the October 2017 fire siege were caused by PG&E electric power and distribution lines, conductors and the failure of power poles.

This news drove the price of PG&E shares down $1.69, or about 4%, to close at $39.76 on June 11, 2018.

“We’re focused on investors’ losses and whether senior executives knew PG&E’s electrical distribution operations were unreliable and unsafe,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
