As myFM informed you this morning, the Strathroy-Caradoc Fire Department engaged in multiple small fires in the Maple Street- Helen Drive area of Strathroy. We talked with Strathroy-Caradoc Deputy District Chief in Mt. Brydges Matthew Stepenson who says a power surge had contributed to the occurrence and it affected other residences so the department had to engage in door to door inspections.
Stephenson says the Fire Marshall completed the investigation around 8:30pm Tuesday giving Hydro the go ahead to repair the service. The investigation is continuing focusing on causes and reasons for the causes. Stephenson says Bell and Rogers Cable are working to repair services over the next day or two. He adds if you do not have a cell phone, to make sure your landline is operational as it is imperative to have 9-1-1 service working.
