Pacific Gas & Electric, commonly referred to as PG&E, the utility company in Northern California, may be responsible for the Camp Fire that's now burning Northern California. By Thursday evening, the blaze had chewed through 141,000 acres and 11,862 structures, destroying an entire town in a matter of hours. While touring the fire area yesterday, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke stated, "This is my fourth trip to California, and unfortunately every trip has had forest fires". Many of its population of 27,000 were retired. Thousands of survivors are now without homes and living in shelters and tent cities.

Meanwhile, a number of celebrities have lost their homes in Malibu as a result of the inferno, including Pierce Brosnan, Miley Cyrus, Neil Young, Robin Thicke, Shannen Doherty and Gerard Butler.
