Light­ning strike likely cause of fire

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

POWER was briefly lost at Jandowae last Fri­day, af­ter a high volt­age power pole fire.

Queens­land Fire and Emergency Ser­vices were called to San­dal­wood Av­enue in Dalby, be­tween Branch Creek Rd and Mill­brook Crt, around 8pm.

Lieu­tenant David Kucks said when crews ar­rived, they quickly brought the blaze un­der con­trol.

“The road was closed for a pe­riod, as we were con­cerned about the power pole fail­ing,” Lt Kucks said.

He said the stormy weather at the time was likely to blame.

“There was a lot of light­ning in the area at the time, so it is likely it was a light­ning strike,” he said.

Er­gon en­ergy cut power to Jandowae briefly while the pole was re­placed.
