Wildfire victims may be charged by FEMA for help if PG&E doesn’t pay $4B

California

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Federal officials may soon bill wildfire victims if PG&E doesn’t make good on a $4 million debt.

PG&E owes the government that money as part of the utility’s bankruptcy case.

FEMA has asked for reimbursement from PG&E to cover costs from the government’s response to recent fires.

If PG&E doesn’t pay up, individual victims would be responsible if they receive settlement funds that duplicate money already paid by the federal government.
