“Let’s say Bonsall or Ramirez Canyon or Trancas, where some of the big giant canyons come down, the potential for clay could come down, you should be worried,” he said.
In addition to the fear of destructive sludge , a Los Angeles County man tells SoCal Edison about claims that the insurance company’s negligence caused Woolsey Fire.

Three people died in the fan – two were found in a burned vehicle in a Malibu driveway and a person in a home of Agoura Hills. At least three firefighters have been injured.
The reason for Woolsey Fire remains under investigation.
