Power out for 25 homes

UPDATED: 6:35 p.m.

Power has been restored to the customers affected in the BX area of Vernon.


ORIGINAL: 4:36 p.m.

What is believed to be a blown transformer has left 25 BC Hydro customers in the dark.

Shortly before 4 p.m., BX/Swan Lake fire crews were called to the Wallace/Falcon Road area for a report of a tree on fire.

Before crews could arrive, the tree stopped burning, but power was cut to several homes in the area.

Crews reported seeing a tree leaning against some wires and a small explosion was heard before the tree went up in flames.

There is no word on when power will be restored, but BC Hydro crews are working on the repairs.
