Edison International provides update on California fire restoration efforts
Southern California Edison today provided an update on the restoration efforts resulting from the Woolsey and Hill wildfires. The company's top priority continues to be the safety of customers, first responders, employees and communities. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those across the state affected by the wildfires. The company's Emergency Operations Center continues to deploy resources and crews to assist first responders and has been restoring power in communities affected by the wildfires in Ventura and Los Angeles counties where fire officials say it is safe to do so. The Woolsey and Hill fires impacted a total of 45,470 customers. To date, SCE has restored power to 39,094 of those customers, or 86 percent. As of 3 p.m. today, there are still 6,376 customers without power. SCE has replaced 249 of the 775 power poles and other electrical equipment that were destroyed or damaged in the Woolsey and Hill fires and crews have installed almost 19 miles of wire.
