wildfire@ (Adds background)
May 13 (Reuters) - PG&E Corp on Monday submitted a proposed order to a U.S. District Court judge that would require the power provider's chief executive and board to visit the California town of Paradise by July 15, to see the destruction caused by a wildfire in November that may be linked to the company's equipment.
The order, agreed to by the U.S. Justice Department and U.S. Probation Officer, awaits U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup's signature.
He is also overseeing PG&E's probation stemming from a felony conviction over a deadly 2010 natural gas pipeline in San Bruno, California, that destroyed a neighbourhood and killed eight people.
The judge last week called for PG&E officials to tour Paradise town. November's Camp Fire levelled the town and killed more than 80 people, marking the most destructive and deadliest wildfire in California's modern history.
The Camp Fire also pushed San Francisco-based PG&E to seek Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in January in the expectation of, potentially, billions of dollars in liabilities. PG&E has said it expects its equipment may be found to have sparked the blaze.
The proposed order also requires PG&E's chief executive and board to visit San Bruno to meet with victims of the 2010 explosion there as well as city officials and firefighters.
