Wes Rogers used a garden hose to fight flames from the 2008 Sesnon fire that had reached the fence of his home in the northwest San Fernando Valley. The memory of the blaze, caused by a downed Southern California Gas Co. electrical distribution wire, is raw. And that has made the utility's plan to revamp its natural gas storage facility in Aliso Canyon a tough sell to residents wary of another fire in the same bushy hills north of Porter Ranch. According to the state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, power lines were suspected in or blamed for four of the 20 largest wildfires in California history, including the Sesnon blaze, which blackened 14,703 acres, destroyed 15 homes and dozens of outbuildings, and remains the suspected cause of a fatal car crash on the 118 Freeway.
