PG&E says it 'strongly disagrees' delayed maintenance played role in Camp Fire

SAN FRANCISCO, July 31 (Reuters) - PG&E Corp said in court papers on Wednesday that it “strongly disagrees” with a suggestion in a Wall Street Journal article that the company knowingly deferred maintenance on equipment that caused California’s Camp Fire, the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California’s modern history.

PG&E filed the papers to answer a U.S. District Court judge’s order demanding the power provider respond to a Wall Street Journal article alleging that the company did not upgrade parts of its electrical grid that it was aware could spark wildfires.
