Line de-energized to clear iced limbNovember 16, 2018
From Local Sources
CELESTINE — The Celestine Volunteer Fire Department was called Thursday morning when an ice-covered limb came in contact with a power line east of Celestine and started arcing.
Fire Chief Ryan Wineinger said the 5:29 a.m. call sent the department to the 7800 block of State Road 164.
Firefighters were on standby until a fuse was tripped further down the line. That de-energized the wires, Wineinger said, allowing the small limb that was burning to go out.
Two trucks and nine firefighters were on the scene 50 minutes.
Firefighters turned the scene over to a Dubois Rural Electric Cooperative crew to be addressed.
