By David R. Baker - Tuesday Oct 17, 2017
The fires still burning across the Wine Country could pose an existential threat to California’s largest utility, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. PG&E's stock price is down 17 percent since Oct. 11, when state fire officials said they would investigate whether PG&E’s power lines, blown by fierce winds, played a role in sparking the fires.
