PG&E (NYSE:PCG) tells California regulators that its power equipment may have contributed to igniting the Zogg Fire, which has killed four people.

In an 8-K filing, the utility says it recorded alarms on some equipment surrounding a power line that served an area in Shasta County, Calif., where the fire is believed to have started; the blaze, which forced evacuations in the area, reportedly is almost fully contained.

Cal Fire has taken possession of some of its equipment as part of a probe into the cause of the fire, the filing says.

The company says the information is preliminary and that it is cooperating with Cal Fire’s investigation.

Can PG&E keep the lights on?” ISTJ Investor asked in a bearish report on the company posted recently on Seeking Alpha.
