Lines were “melted”

An estimated 242 B.C. Hydro customers lost power early Saturday morning because of a downed power line.

Hydro reported the lights went out around 3:16 a.m. in an area west of 248 Street, north of 24 Avenue, south of 40 Avenue and east of 232 Street, and were expected to be back on by 8:30 a.m.

A member of the crew working on the power line told The Times a fallen tree branch had “melted”the power line.

Traffic was blocked off on 240 Street near 32 Avenue while the repairs were being carried out.
