Bobcat Wildfire May Have Been Sparked By Utility Company Equipment
Southern California Edison says federal investigators have asked for a section of overhead conductor.
A huge, destructive wildfire near Los Angeles may have been sparked by a utility company's equipment.
Southern California Edison says federal investigators have asked for a section of overhead conductor from a transmission facility in the area where the Bobcat Fire started two weeks ago. Edison says its equipment in that area reported an issue five minutes before the first report of a fire.
Firefighters are finally starting to get a handle on the blaze, but thousands are still under evacuation orders.
