PARADISE, Calif. - A California utility company is working round the clock to make sure homes in the Camp Fire burn areas have power restored and that it is safe when repopulation begins.
Pacific Gas and Electric Company have 3,800 workers working as fast as they can before the upcoming rain in the burn-scarred areas.
A spokesperson for the company says personnel is making a lot of good progress restoring power to those living in upper Magalia and that it’s going to take some time for Paradise to see light.
“We’re making good progress every day. Right now we have approximately 2,960 customers that are out of service that will be able to receive service,” said Denny Boyles, of PG&E.
The base camp off Skyway has been the center for lots of activity including lodging, food services and daily briefings for workers before they head out to those affected areas.
