California's biggest utility company Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) pleaded guilty Tuesday to involuntary manslaughter for the deaths of 84 people in the 2018 Camp Fire.
The company will be fined millions of dollars, but no executives or employees are expected to face any prison time. The Camp Fire resulted in some $16.5 billions of dollars in property damage and left PG&E defamed and bankrupt.
