According to Reuters, a California utility informed regulators on Thursday that it was investigating whether a devastating wildfire near Malibu last month may have been caused by contact between electrical wires. In a letter to the California Public Utilities Commission, Southern California Edison said it found a so-called guy wire near a jumper wire that is used to connect two energized lines. The utility said it is evaluating whether the guy wire came into contact with the jumper, which could have had the potential to cause the blaze.
