On this edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss the history of PG&E and its role in California’s wildfires.

Up to 2.7 million people in Northern California lost power beginning last week due to PG&E’s planned power shutoffs, and thousands of Bay Area customers are still in the dark without power. How is PG&E to blame for wildfire risk and what do we do now?
