Hearing To Make Back Country Safer During Fire Season

Posted: Updated:

California's PUC is trying to make San Diego's back country areas safer during fire season.

It held a public hearing Tuesday night in Kearny Mesa to get ideas on how to prevent power and communication lines from sparking fires.

People called for more inspections of utility poles, increased tree trimming and shutting off power during strong winds.

A decision on the new rules is expected this summer.
