WIND TOPPLES POLE AND STARTS A FIRE

High winds yesterday were the cause of a power pole toppling over, contacting a row of trees and catching fire. The Hennessey Firefighters had just returned to the station after selling sandwiches at the wine festival when they got the fire call. The pole was located about 2 ½ East of Hwy 81 and Conoco Rd., (E640 Rd.) and ½ south. Firefighters stayed on scene until Cimarron Electric arrived to disconnect the power. Video provided.
