Nearly 50 Thousand Customers Without Power, California Electric Company Works to Avoid Wildfire Spark

More than 48 thousand electric customers are without power.

It comes after a California utility company shut off several grids in an attempt to prevent wildfires.

This is the second public shutdown this week for pacific gas and electric.

Especially dry, hot, and windy weather pushed the company to make the call.

PG&E says the conditions are just too risky to leave the power on.

In November of last year the PG&E was responsible for the deadliest fire in the U.S. since 1918.

The shutdowns are expected to last until Wednesday afternoon.
