Not only has it taken a California agency nine years and counting, to create a “Fire Map”, but last year when presented with a bill to push the process, Jerry Brown VETOED the bill.  He is the cause of the intensity of the fire—refusing to clear brush, cut trees, get rid of dead trees—and NOT forcing his agency to do their job.

“The California state agency charged with overseeing utility companies took nine years to develop a consistent statewide map designating areas at high risk for destructive power-line fires.

Seven of those years took place during outgoing Gov. Jerry Brown’s time in office and six were during the tenure of a president of a key state agency who resigned after a series of leadership scandals.

Longtime critics of the utility companies and their role in sparking some of the state’s worst wildfires are voicing new concerns after reports that PG&E’s transmission line malfunctioned minutes before the start of the Camp Fire, the deadliest, most destructive fire in the state’s history.

The fire was not directly caused by government.  The intensity of the fire was due to government policy—or lack of policy.
