Residents escape fallen live wire catastrophe - Kearsley

Published: 05 Jun 2020 05:32pm

Fire and Rescue NSW crews from Kearsley attended a call to live wires down on Friday evening.

Power to the area was not lost and the live wire was only noticed on the ground because residents saw it arching as the evening darkened. They then called Triple Zero (000).

It is not known how long the live wire was on the ground and nearby cars before it was noticed.

Crews arrived and established an exclusion zone until Ausgrid could arrive and replace the live fallen high voltage wire.
