Meeting held over San Bruno fire lawsuits
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- An important step is underway in the legal battle over September's deadly San Bruno pipeline explosion and fire.
Attorneys representing the residents who have sued the utility are meeting to discuss consolidating their cases. The gathering comes in advance of a meeting Thursday afternoon with PG&E's lawyers on the same issue.
At least 35 separate lawsuits from eight firms have been filed against PG&E in connection with the disaster, which killed eight people and destroyed or seriously damaged 55 homes.
