Snow downs power line in Dashwood area
Dashwood firefighters had to doff their jammies and don their protective gear early Monday morning when the first snowfall of the year brought a power line down at the intersection of Corcan Road and Meadowood Way.
The line caught a hedge on fire and the line remained active for some time until a BC Hydro crew arrived to turn off the power.
Dashwood crews blocked off access to the area and checked on homes in the vicinity of the line down to advise them to remain in their homes until BC Hydro declared the area safe and power was cut.
