SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Zogg Fire killed four people and destroyed hundreds of buildings in September.

Some of the survivors say PG&E is responsible. Potter Handy is the law firm representing 150 Zogg Fire victims. Those 150 people represent about 6000 acres burned.

In the complaint, the victims are seeking damages for personal injury, loss of property, injury to livestock and pets, and wrongful harm to name a few.

“Our clients are due fair compensation for what they loss,” said Brett Parkinson one of the attorneys representing the victims.

“They should be able to put their properties and their lives back together as a result of the lawsuit.”

The 53-page complaint also lists PG&E’s liability such as negligence, both public and private nuisance, and trespassing to name a few.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. But PG&E tells Action News Now it is fully cooperating with Cal Fire.

It was nice to receive some rain and mountain snow around northern California late Sunday and early Monday. Thankfully a change to our overall weather pattern is underway, and many more chances of rain are coming!
