  • A red flag warning – which indicates ripe conditions for wildfires – remains in effect through Saturday.
  • The wildfires in the south erupted as California’s largest utility, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), implemented rolling power blackouts that affected some two million people in northern California this week.
  • Last November, PG&E’s faulty power lines were determined to have sparked the deadliest wildfire in the state’s modern history.
