Burning bush causes power outage Thursday night


This was the scene shortly after 10:00 last night captured on one of our PTZ cameras of a power outage near downtown Wenatchee. Rivercom reports a bush near a power pole on Whitman Way between Mission and Wenatchee Avenue caught fire. The Chelan PUD cut power to that pole while firefighters doused the fire. Power in the affected area was restored after about 30 minutes. No one was injured and no structures were threatened.
