Pacific Gas & Electric Co. faces as much as $29 b...

Shutdown Hampers Wildfire Preparations

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Just two months after a wildfire wiped out Paradise, California, officials are gearing up for this year’s fire season and fear the government shutdown could make it even more difficult than one of the worst in history.
