From Local Sources

DUBOIS — Ice accumulation put a tree in contact with power lines Thursday afternoon north of the Dubois Crossroads.

Members of the Dubois Volunteer Fire Department responded to the 6000 block of County Road 900N at 2:03 p.m., according to department spokesman Zach Eichmiller.

Eichmiller said there was a flash fire but the department just had to keep units on standby while a Dubois Rural Electric Cooperative line crew cleared the lines.

One truck and five firefighters were on the scene 45 minutes.
