MAGALIA, Calif. - California Gov. Gavin Newsom was in Magalia on Thursday, meeting with Camp Fire survivors and talking about wildfire prevention.

The governor, along with state lawmakers and local leaders, spoke with Camp Fire survivors, including staff and students at Pine Ridge Elementary.

On Wednesday, Newsom signed two bills to provide emergency funding to local governments like those in Butte County. 

Newsom spoke about PG&E declaring bankruptcy and said it's important to hold the company responsible. 

"They're going to be held accountable in the letter of the law," he said. "We're going to hold them to account to make sure the victims made whole and hold them accountable to make sure that the service remains consistent. We're going to hold them accountable, beyond the bankruptcy court, not just long term strategies."
