REDDING, Calif. - Shasta County and Tehama County announced a collective settlement with Pacific Gas and Electric for damaged caused by the 2020 Zogg Fire, the Tehama County Board of Supervisors said.
The settlement is $12.36 million for public and natural resource damages in the 56,338-acre fire.
In March, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection announced they would be investigating if PG&E equipment was the cause of the Zogg Fire.
A large amount of the settlement is attributable to damages in Shasta County where the fire burnt through unincorporated areas of the county.
Fire crews contained the fire just inside Tehama County, which suffered less damage than Shasta County. Therefore, Tehama County will receive less than 1% of the overall settlement.
