The Dixie Fire is the second-largest individual fire in California history, burning more than 900,000 acres and damaging or destroying over 1300 structures as it continues to burn into its eighth week.

Flames from the Dixie Fire spread in Genesee, Calif., Aug. 21, 2021. A Pacific Gas & Electric troubleshooter spent nearly two hours in federal court Monday, Sept. 13 fielding questions about whether the beleaguered utility could have turned off the electricity flowing to a power line suspected of sparking the monstrous Dixie Fire.
