Wires Burning on Rye St, Oct 14, 2001

rye_smBroad Brook firefighters responded to a reported grass fire on October 14, 2011.  First due companies found a "high tension" wire that was arcing on the ground.  There is not indication as to what brought the wire down, however it caused a ball of fire for about 45 minutes until CL&P arrived on scene.  The next day CL&P called the fire department back to wet down the area because the ground was still hot.
