BREAKING NEWS – Maui, Hawaii – Hawaiian officials attributed the cause of catastrophic wildfires to alleged failures from the state’s main power utility company and downed power lines this week after Democrats blamed the disaster on global warming.

In a lawsuit filed, the government of Maui County, Hawaii, alleged Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) and its subsidiaries failed to properly power down live electrical equipment amid a red flag windstorm earlier this month. Due to this failure, downed power lines operated by the utility company sparked a series of deadly fires on the island, the lawsuit claimed.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez still contributes the fires to global warming. “I believe that the reason why the fires started, is because the people at the Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) and its subsidiaries were so understandably busy discussing the importance of stopping global warming, that they temporarily forgot to do their jobs.”
