SoCal Edison says its equipment may have sparked Silverado Fire

The aggressive Silverado Fire in Orange County may have been started by faulty Southern California Edison equipment, the utility company has revealed.

Southern California Edison filed an incident report with the California Public Utilities Commission stating that “preliminary information reflects SCE overhead electrical facilities are located in the origin area of the Silverado Fire….it appears that a lashing wire that was attached to an underbuilt telecommunications line may have contact [sic] SCE’s overhead primary conductor which may have resulted in the ignition of the fire.”

Silverado Fire Claims – Compensation You Can Seek

While each case is different, common damage categories include:

  • Business losses
  • Damage to trees, timber, or underwood
  • Depreciation in the value of your land
  • Emotional distress
  • Harm to pets or livestock
  • Loss of crops
  • Lost wages
  • Personal injury
  • The cost to repair or replace your home and personal property
  • The loss of use and enjoyment of your property
  • Wrongful death

You may be entitled to damages that your insurance – even good insurance — won’t cover. In addition to underinsured homes, most insurance policies don’t cover vegetation that is not part of the landscaping, natural vegetation or compensation for you or your family for the upheaval caused by the Silverado Fire. The law provides for more compensation than most people realize.
