Wildfire Lawsuit

A battle over the 2006 deadly wildfires in the panhandle is over.

Xcel Energy and Cano Petroleum have reached a settlement, though the details have not been released.

Xcel sued Cano in 2007 claiming its electrical wiring and equipment used in its oil and gas operations started a massive wildfire in Carson County.

The blaze destroyed nearly a million acres of land and killed 12 people.
