The Tubbs Fire is a major wildfire that stretched across large portions of Northern California in October and November of 2017, including in Napa County. According to data provided by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), the Tubbs Fire burned nearly 37,000 acres. In terms of property damage, CAL FIRE has labeled the Tubbs Fire the single most destructive fire in the history of the state of California. At least 5,700 structures have been destroyed. That is almost twice as much property damage than what occurred in the state’s second worst fire, the 1991 TUNNEL – Oakland Hills Fire.
At the current time, the Tubbs Fire is still under investigation by California authorities. Though, important leads have emerged.

If you suffered any type of damage in the Tubbs Fire, whether injury or property loss, please contact our San Francisco office today for immediate legal assistance.
There is evidence to suggest that the massive Tubbs Fire was partially the fault of Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E). As has been reported extensively, downed power lines and transformer explosions were seen throughout Napa County and Sonoma County as the fire started. In mid-October, the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) launched an official investigation into PG&E’s role in the Tubbs Fire. PG&E has responded by trying to push blame for the fire onto other entities. Indeed, the company stated on the record that its own preliminary investigation indicated that the fire could have be caused by defective power lines and electrical equipment owned and maintained by a private third-party company.
