Two lawsuits filed Wednesday ask for more than $1 billion in damages from Pacific Power claiming negligence for igniting wildfires in the Santiam Canyon, according to court records filed in Marion County.

The two lawsuits represent over 100 different people impacted by the Beachie Creek Fire.

The two law firms leading the effort, Edelson PC and Johnson Johnson Lucas and Middleton, say Pacific Power, doing businesses as PacifiCorp, "failed to safely design, operate, and maintain its infrastructure leading to the fire."
