Tree Takes Down Wires and Power Poles Sparking Grass Fire in La Habra Heights

On June 20, 2017 La Habra Heights Firefighters responded to a reported grass fire with electrical wires down in the 300 block of East Rd. Upon arrival, Firefighters found a large tree that had fallen across the road landing on power lines and communication cables.
The weight of the tree snapped 2 power poles, brought down power and communications cables, and caused a small grass fire on the east side of the road

Firefighters quickly knocked down the fire and contained it to a 50' X 50' area of recently cleared dried grass. A private contractor removed the tree and So. Cal. Edison replace several power poles to restore power to the area. East Rd. remained closed until late into the night.
