Benson & Bingham Attorneys at Law are actively looking into cases of house fires in Nevada from smart meters installed by NV Energy. There is disturbing evidence, as cited in that linked-to Reno Gazette-Journal article, that smart meters installed by NV Energy on homes across Nevada have been the cause of house fires that ranged in damage from a little soot on the outside of the house to people killed  in house fires in Northern Nevada. The possibility has become so real and alarming that the chiefs of the fire departments of the cities of Reno and Sparks have called for a probe in to the smart meters and fires that have potentially been started by them.

NV Energy, of course, is vehemently denying that their meters have any hand in starting and contributing to the damage from any of these fires. They cite evidence from investigators that they have hired to look into the fires, which they are calling “independent” investigators. That may be true. However, don’t take the word of the people who stand to lose by a result other than that. That’s why Benson & Bingham are pleased at the fire chiefs calling for a further investigation.
