California’s Dixie Fire Leaves Gold Rush-era Town of Greenville in Ruins

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “California’s Dixie Fire Leaves Gold Rush-era Town of Greenville in Ruins” – below is their description.

Wildfires raging across California have forced almost 16,000 evacuations, including a blaze northeast of Sacramento that laid waste to an entire town.

The Dixie Fire, which troubled utility giant PG&E Corp. said may have been sparked by one of its power lines, ripped through the gold-rush-era hamlet of Greenville late Wednesday, leveling buildings, melting street lamp posts and leaving downtown in ruins, according to local news reports.

“We lost Greenville,” Doug LaMalfa, a U.S. Congressman who represents the area, said in a video statement. “We have to stop making this happen.”
