Fault sparks electrical fire
An electricity pole that caught fire required the attention of Ashford’s firefighters on Saturday morning.
The town’s Red Watch received a call at around 7.30am to a report of a pole alight in Nickley Wood Road in Shadoxhurst.
One appliance attended the scene, with the crew working for around an hour to cordon off the area and make it safe.
Engineers from electricity firm UK Power Networks were also in attendance. It is believed the fire was caused by a fault.
