BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Wednesday, May 8, 2019, marks six months since the start of the Camp Fire, which devastated Butte County.

PG&E said it's probable its equipment may have been an ignition point for the fire and the utility is still in the hot seat. 

On Tuesday, a federal judge ordered PG&E board members to tour the town of Paradise to see the destruction of the Camp Fire first hand. The tour is a part of the utility's punishment for violating its felony probation terms imposed after one of its natural gas pipes that exploded in 2010, killing eight people. 

The judge said he wants the utility's newly appointment board to focus on complying with new wildfire safety plans approved by regulators. 

The town of Paradise's most recent update said that 1,887 properties have had debris removed through the state program as of April 30. A new update will be released on Wednesday. 

Action News Now is continuing to cover the fire six months after its start.
