Utility company charged with manslaughter, other crimes in California wildfire that killed 4Pushed by strong winds, the fire began on Sept. 27, 2020, and raged through the rugged Sierra Nevada and communities, killing four people, burning about 200 homes and blackening about 87 square miles of land.
