PG&E under fire for wildfire and falsified pipeline safety records, regulators say.

PG&E under fire for wildfire and falsified pipeline safety records, regulators say.

PG&E was accused on Friday of falsifying safety documents for the state's natural gas pipelines.

The California Public Utilities Commission said, after an investigation by it's staff found PG&E lacked enough employees to fulfill requests to find and mark natural gas pipelines.

It even falsified safety documents after it was blamed for a pipeline explosion that killed eight people in 2010.

According to investigators, PG&E "had common knowledge among it's supervisors that locators falsified data."

The company has said that it has hired more employees and that it's improving it's pipeline tracking system. It will be able to testify on the findings and provide evidence that there were no safety violations.

So far, PG&E has been fined more than $1.6 billion by regulators.
