Fire and Power Outage – Power Line Broke at 4:05am

We lost power to our cabin at 4:05am this morning.

Our generator kicked on and we went back to bed, unaware that our Walker Fire Department was out in the cold and snow, at 4:00am, putting out this electrical fire.

APS restored power at about 9:30am.

Walker Fire posted these photos to their FaceBook page.
