Power outage on Pescador Drive

A loud buzz, pop and crackling got residents on Pescador Drive on their feet and a minute later the power was off. Power lines on the BEL utility pole right across the office of Ambergris Today caught on fire and BEL linesmen were quick on the site to shut of the power supply to this section of Pescador Drive. No major damage was caused to the utility post and transformer and power was restored in about an hour.
