Cal Fire Reports Cause of Miller Fire
The agency also states,
Cal Fire would like to remind everyone that installing electrical wires on top of the ground is unsafe and not compliant with codes. This includes extension cords used as permanent installations, but not electric fences used for animal control. Wires laid in such a manner are exposed to damage from weather, animals, foot traffic, equipment use, etc. Any of these influences can cause weaknesses to the wire’s insulation and create a potential ignition source.
