PG&E’s proposed $105 million wildfire assistance fund was approved by the bankruptcy court this week. The fund will help the victims of the November 2018 Camp Fire (which was recently reported to have been started by faulty PG&E equipment) that decimated thousands of homes and took 85 lives in the Paradise, CA area. In January 2019, PG&E sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the wake of the fire, as it faces an estimated $30 billion in liabilities. The bankruptcy court judge said he wants to see PG&E’s proposed fund up and running as quickly as possible, and he expects details about eligibility and applications will be made available over the coming weeks.
