PG&E takes $10.5 bln charge related to 2018 Camp Fire

Feb 28 (Reuters) - California power company PG&E Corp , which filed for bankruptcy last month because of potential liabilities from wildfires in the state, recorded a $10.5 billion charge related to 2018 Camp Fire, the company said in a filing on Thursday.

PG&E also said it would take an additional $1 billion charge related to 2017 Northern California wildfires

Federal filings showed on Wednesday the power utility had delayed a safety overhaul of a high-voltage transmission line, a prime suspect behind the deadliest wildfire in California's history. (Reporting by John Benny in Bengaluru; Editing by Anil D'Silva)
