A corporation can be held liable under the respondeat superior doctrine for loss and fire suppression costs caused by the corporation’s employee’s negligent acts in starting a wildfire.  Neither the statutory language nor the legislative history of Health & Safety Code 13009 and 13009.1, which allow the state to recover for wildfire suppression costs and wildfire damage to public property from one who negligently or intentionally sets a wildfire, show any legislative intent to preclude application of normal rules of respondeat superior.
