- California Paradise Camp Fire is Deadliest in 100 Years
November 16, 2018
As deputies, National Guard troops and coroners continue searching for human remains, the death toll from the Paradise Camp fire in California has increased to more than 60 people. The number of missing people has also increased to 631.
The fire that started last week has completely destroyed Paradise, California and continued to burn in surrounding communities. Last weekend, wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour helped the fire spread further.
The fire has now become the deadliest in the U.S. in a century, and the deadliest and most destructive fire in the history of the state of California.
The fire has destroyed more than 10,000 structures, including thousands of homes. As of Sunday, the Camp Fire spanned 110,000 acres, forcing tens of thousands of people to evacuate. Unfortunately, the fire may not be fully contained until the end of the month, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), which provides gas and electric service in the region affected by the fire, has admitted that it would be financially devastated if it is found to be liable for this fire. According to a regulatory filing from Tuesday, there was an outage on a transmission line in Butte County on the morning of November 8, only 15 minutes before the fire started.
The company has already taken a hit financially ”“ shares of PG&E stock fell more than 30 percent on Wednesday. The value of the stock has been cut in half since the fire started.

They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
