2018 BUTTE CAMP FIRE RESOURCES

Camp Fire Lawyers filed a lawsuit on behalf of several Camp Fire survivors who suffered injuries and lost their homes and businesses as a result of the Butte Camp wildfires. The lawsuit alleges, among other things, that PG&E was negligent in failing to maintain its infrastructure and properly inspect and manage its power transmission lines, the failure of which ultimately caused the Camp Fire to ignite on Pulga Road near Paradise, California.

Camp Fire Shelters with Specialized Resources and Health Professionals

California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) built an expansive state staging area next to the Chico airport and began moving supplies into the area within 24 hours of the wildfire’s start.

The California Department of Social Services is working closely with Butte County Social Services, Butte County OES, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and Southern Baptist Disaster Relief to coordinate sheltering and feeding operations throughout the county.
