At approximately 2:15 p.m. on Friday, July 29, 2022, firefighters reacted to the McKinney Fire, a recently reported wildfire on the Oak Knoll Ranger District of the Klamath National Forest.

The governor of California, Gavin Newsom, issued a state of emergency, confirmed that an unspecified number of homes and businesses had been burned by the wildfire, and said that around 2,000 residents had been ordered to evacuate.

There has been a lot of discussion about what caused the McKinney Fire to start.

  • Possible Faulty Power Line

The cause of the fire is still being investigated. If the power company is found to be at fault for the fire, you may be entitled to compensation that your insurance – even good insurance – would not cover. Aside from underinsured properties, most insurance plans do not cover vegetation that is not part of the landscaping, natural vegetation, or compensation for the harm you and your family experienced as a result of the McKinney Fire.

The McKinney Fire may have started beneath a power line circuit that had failed just hours before.

The McKinney Fire started as a half-acre grass fire “under the power line right of way.” PacifiCorp, the utility’s parent company, operates the same circuit, the Scott Bar 12,000 volt distribution line. According to PacifiCorp, electricity went out for around 300 customers supplied by the Scott Bar circuit at 9 p.m. the night before and was restored at 5 a.m. on the day of the fire.

McKinney Fire Started Under a Power Line That Had Trouble Just Hours Earlier

The deadly McKinney Fire, which has so far consumed over 60,000 acres in the Klamath National Forest, began underneath a power line circuit that had trouble just hours earlier, the NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit has learned. Jaxon Van Derbeken reports.
