BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - PG&E will be in court on Tuesday, June 16 for starting the Camp Fire and causing the death of 84 people.

According to the Butte County District Attorney, the superior court set aside several days for the proceedings.

Dozens of families, whose loved ones were killed, will be there to present Victim Impact Statements to the sentencing judge.

"They're gonna admit to the incident and they're guilty and they know it, but nobody's going to jail for it," said Magalia man, Joe Cardoza. "So, hopefully, this will change things in the future for good, not broken promises like in the past."

Other survivors were welcome to submit written impact statements for review by the judge. District Attorney Mike Ramsey invited people who lost homes, property, businesses or were injured physically or mentally by the Camp Fire to do so.

Because of the coronavirus, there will be no public seating, but the arraignment will be broadcasted live on YouTube.

The arraignment is scheduled to begin on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at the North Butte County Superior Court in Chico.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
