Units were dispatched this afternoon at 4:38 for a tree that had fallen blocking the roadway and brought down PP&L power lines. The area was closed to traffic until the arrival of PP&L and they were able to make repairs and restore service.
As Chief 20 arrived and before the roadway could be secured, multiple vehicles drove over the downed tree which had power lines wrapped around it. For your safety, don’t assume the power lines are de-energized. If you come across downed lines, turn around. Do not drive over them, it could be a deadly mistake,
