Lightning strike likely cause of fire
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.
