DA Seeks Info On Livestock And Animal Losses In The Zogg Fire

As the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office seeks criminal charges against PG&E for last year’s Zogg Fire, they’re asking to hear from people who suffered injury or death to their animals, either pets or livestock. Letters are being sent to all known Zogg Fire property owners asking for the information. Those who suffered losses and do not receive the letter in the mail are asked to contact the DA’s Office Task Force at shastadazoggfire@co.shasta.ca.us or 225-5481. Cal-Fire and PG&E have both already confirmed the fire was caused by PG&E electrical lines contacting a Gray Pine Tree that had been identified as a hazard in 2018, but was not removed in time. The Zogg Fire burned more than 56,000 acres, destroyed more than 200 buildings and killed four residents as they tried to escape the flames. DA Stephanie Bridgett has said a filing decision will be made prior to the Zogg Fire anniversary, which is September 27th.
