Wild weather causes power interuptions in Kyabram, Tongala and Kyvalley.February 9, 2014 4:10pm
About 30 Kyabram, Tongala and Kyvalley households are expected to be without electricity until 7pm tonight after a power line sparked a fire west of Kyabram this afternoon.
District fire brigades were called to the fire about 1km from Kyabram on McColl Rd at 2pm after a nearby farmer spotted it.
It took about 40 minutes for the fire brigades to get the fire under control which was caused by the low voltage line coming into contact with paperbark trees in windy conditions.
An area of about 20m by 100m was burnt.
Originally power was cut to 476 customers across the district.
Powercor technicians are on the scene.
