Power Line Falls On Fire Truck In Sacramento

View Comments

Power lines fell on a fire truck this morning while it was responding to a fire in north Sacramento.

It happened while firefighters were battling a house fire on Kesner Avenue. Luckily no one was home at the time.

SMUD crews arrived on scene to deal with the downed power lines and neighbors are relieved that fire didn’t spread.

“I just know that I saw the flames going and heard it pop, and you can still see some flames back there,” said a neighbor. “And I went home and came back to make sure there was nobody in there.”

The house is destroyed. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
