We now know the cause of one of the big fires from 2017. This particular fire was the Cascade fire in Yolo County.
It broke out almost a year ago to the date: October 8th, 2017 and burned 10,000 acres.
According to a report released by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, the cause was strong winds causing two power lines to touch.
The power lines, (owned by Pacific Gas and Electric Co.,) then created an electrical arc that sent molten material onto dry vegetation and the rest is history.
