Fire in power transformer at Whitstone

Two crews from Bude were mobilised to a large power transformer mounted on a telegraph pole, near Whitstone yesterday afternoon at 4.40pm.

On arrival, the transformer box was found to be smoking heavily, which is always a worrying sight for residents.

The transformer was monitored by crews until the arrival of Western Power, who were able to isolate the power supply and make the scene safe.
