happen? >> it is always possible something like this would still happen. is that what happened here? they know they have an obligation, to identify trees and vegetation that pose a hazard to their power lines. that is their job.>> reporter: pg&e released a statement saying extreme weather conditions impacted equipment. >> it says millions of trees weakened by years of drought and recent renewed vegetation growth from winter storms all contributed to some trees branches and debris impacting our electric lines across the northbay. it it meant -- lines were involved. and perhaps equipment was involved. but tries to redirect people into believing this was because of high winds that were unforeseen. i don't buy that. at this stage.>> reporter: thursday we brought this
questions to pg&e. there will likely be review of these wildfires by the appropriate agencies. right now we are focused on life safety and service restoration. we are not going to speculate about the causes. will support the review by any relevant agency. >> if it is true that pg&e says there were weakened trees why want those weakened trees identified and removed as is their responsibility? our coverage on the northbay wildfire devastation continues throughout this hour. a touching tribute to a bay area woman was killed in a recent massacre in las vegas. >> we have experienced unimaginable pain.>> the memorial held in the her honor. stomach the cubs and nationals battle it out in a marathon game 5 of the division series. mark is back. he will tell us who will face
