Five Northern California counties announced Wednesday they were suing Pacific Gas and Electric Co. over damages and injuries caused by the Dixie Fire. The Dixie Fire stands as the second-largest wildfire in California history and the 14th-most destructive, according to Cal Fire. As of Wednesday, it was 95% contained and had 1,218 personnel still assigned to it. Butte, Plumas, Lassen, Shasta and Tehama counties are all included as co-plaintiffs in the lawsuit that was filed in San Francisco Superior Court, which has overseen several other fire cases including the North Bay Fire, Kincade Fire and Zogg Fire.
