SDG&E to pay $14.3 million to state in wildfire settlement

Posted: Updated:
San Diego Gas and Electric has reached a settlement with state agencies for its role in the 2007 San Diego County wildfires.

SDG&E will pay the state $14.3 million for investigations into the Witch Creek, Rice Canyon and Guejito Fires.

The Consumer Protection and Safety Division determined that the utility's power lines played a role in sparking all three fires, which destroyed 1300 homes and killed two people.
