First Prev 1 2 Next Last

A Warwick road was this morning closed after a utility pole caught fire.

Police closed a section of Middle Road between Tamarind Vale and Burnt House Hill to allow workers to replace the damaged pole.

A police spokesman said traffic diversions were in place but that traffic flow was expected to return to normal in about an hour.

Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service spokesman Leonard Davis said: “At 7.45 this morning the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service responded to a report of a pole fire in Middle Road, Warwick.

“Upon their arrival, they reported that a telephone pole was seen on fire with live wires hanging in the road. The Fire service remained on scene until Belco shut down the main power to the pole and the police service cordoned off the area.”
