Tree snaps utility pole, downs power line


Coastal Electric Cooperative crews are working to fix a power line and pole that was damaged when a tree fell.

It happened Tuesday afternoon on Harris Neck Road in McIntosh County. A tree hit a three-phase power line feeder, 50-foot power pole was broken and a grass fire started when the three phases of the power line hit the ground, according to the Coastal Electrical Cooperative.

A crew is working on the lines and another crew bringing a new utility pole to the location so it can be installed.
