YUBA COUNTY, Calif. - Yuba County is moving forward with plans to sue PG&E over the cause of the Cascade Fire.

The lawsuit will be an effort to recover some of the money spent battling the Cascade Fire. The fire, which killed four people, burned five square miles in Yuba County in 2017. 

Cal Fire confirmed that the fire was caused by PG&E power lines. 

The lawsuit will set Yuba County up for millions of dollars in fire-related costs, but will not address losses to private property.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
