PG&E is approved for a $1.5 billion dollar loan to continue operations for the first four weeks of bankruptcy proceedings.

A federal bankruptcy judge approved the loan on Thursday.

An attorney for the company says the utility wants to establish a trust fund for fire victims.

PG&E's bankruptcy filing Tuesday listed roughly $71 billion in assets and $51 billion in debt. That does not include the tens of billions of dollars in potential liability for the northern California wildfires in the area.
