CHICO, Calif. - The deadline to file a PG&E claim is tomorrow, Dec. 31, 2019 at 5 p.m.

The original deadline to file a claim was October 21 of this year. However, PG&E extended that deadline to December 31.

This is all part of the company's bankruptcy process.

You can file a claim with the utility if you were impacted by fires that happened before January 29, 2019.

The claims representative told Action News Now it is too late to file by mail and you must now do it in person or online. He also reminded you do not have to have a home to file a claim. Claims can include any loss of property, emotional and mental distress, evacuation or displacement expenses, loss of community and more.

If you miss the deadline, there will not be another opportunity to get compensation from PG&E.

PG&E wants to see your repair estimates if your home was destroyed or damaged. For personal injury claims, have a copy of your medical records to give to the utility.

If you lost wages, let's say you weren't able to work because of the fire then get that documentation through your employer or payroll stubs.

To file a claim in person, visit one of the help centers, below between 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For help call 1-888-909-0100 or CLICK HERE.

Dry weather, sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and gusty north winds will drive elevated fire danger today. We'll have even stronger winds, but cooler temperatures on Tuesday. Fire danger will remain elevated. There will also be a chance for light showers in the Sierra on Tuesday and Wednesday.
