PG&E is advising some Napa County towns to expect more frequent planned power outages this fire season.

NAPA COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) -- PG&E is advising some Napa County towns to expect more frequent planned power outages this fire season.

Those communities are Calistoga, Angwin and Mount Veeder.

PG&E says there's a high concentration of trees near power lines in those areas, which increases the likelihood of public safety power shutoffs (PSPS).
