Ventura & Thomas Fire Lawsuit

Thomas Fire Lawsuit1) Thomas Fire Lawsuits:

We filed the first lawsuit against the City of Ventura and Southern California Edison Company (“SCE”) on behalf of homeowners who lost their homes during the Thomas Fire. Our Complaint alleges that the Thomas Fire was caused when electrical equipment owned and operated by SCE came into contact with vegetation in the hills above Steckel Park in Santa Paula at approximately 6:28 p.m. on December 4, 2017.  Our lawsuit also alleges that Ventura Water failed to maintain properly working backup generators to pump water uphill to fire hydrants located in the hillside neighborhoods of Ventura, causing substantial loss of property.
