Possum caught in electrical wires Caringbah

Published: 12th August 2009

In the early hours of this morning firefighters from Cronulla were responded to electrical wires arcing in Caringbah Rd, Caringbah. The firefighters on arrival found that a possum had managed to get itself caught in the electrical wires that run from the power pole to the house. This caused the wires to arc and cut the electricity to the house. Once the electricity had been isolated by the energy authority, firefighters released the possum and are liaising with WIRES regarding the on going care of the possum.
