Power lines down

A power line that went down along Jasmine Road, sparked a satellite dish to catch fire on the roof of a neighbouring home.

Power was cut to several homes along Jasmine Road, however Fortis was called to the scene to restore the line.

Captain Mike Hall says the flames from the satellite dish did not spread to the roof of the home, although several Telus lines were melted.

No one was injured in the incident.
