Crews Working To Restore Power In Blakely

August 4, 2018

BLAKELY Crews are working to restore power in the Peckville section of the borough this evening. A downed power line in the 200 block of Woodhaven Street caused a fuse to explode, leading to power outages throughout the borough, Borough Manager Thomas Wascura said. The incident started about 10:25 p.m. Fire crews found the wire on the roof of a home. There was some smoke, but no damage to the home. Fire officials believe a fallen tree branch brought the wire down. There’s no word on when power will be restored, Wilson Fire Company 1 Assistant Chief Tom Taylor said. — FRANK WILKES LESNEFSKY
