Power lines damaged at Torrens

Firefighters are currently on scene at Torrens assessing power lines that have landed on a pool fence in a backyard of a residence.

The power line is not in the swimming pool and ACT Fire & Rescue is ensuring the area is safe before ACTEW/AGL technicians arrive to repair.

On further investigation, firefighters have discovered that a tree has damaged power lines and a pole affecting the residents on Beasley and Parsons Streets. Residents have been advised to stay inside until the power has been isolated.
