Cross-arm to blame for hydro line fire

BC Hydro says a failed cross-arm is to blame for a downed transmission line in Terrace this morning.

Dave Mosure with hydro community relations says the line came down on a fence at approximately 5:30 causing a fire in field off of Graham Avenue.

Mosure says hydro crews were able to switch power to another line and then make the area safe for firefighters.

Fire crews were able to extinguish the flames and clear the area shortly after 9 a.m.

Mosure says BC Hydro is making repairs to the pole and should complete their work by about 1 p.m. today.
