Lacy Lakeview area remains without power due to fire

LACY LAKEVIEW - Power is still out in the Lacy Lakeview area after a fire Saturday afternoon.

The power went out around 3:15 p.m. and the fire department believes the outage was caused by an overloaded power line, which caused it to burn and collapse.

The powerline made contact with a fence which electrified it causing fires to begin down Highway 77.

Around 11 fire trucks from three different cities were dispatched to put out the blaze and it took firefighters more than an hour to put it out. 

Power is expected to be out for several more hours and officials said water pressure may be lower in the area due to a pump station going out.

Water is being rerouted from other stations in the area.
