Pole fire knocks out power on Cranberry Highway

Feb 10, 2020

A pole fire in front of the Circle K gas station on Cranberry Highway in East Wareham has knocked out power to the streetlights and businesses down the strip, beginning at the split near Circle K and continuing until Buzzards Way Auto. Stop lights are also without power. An Eversource truck arrived at 6:08 to begin the work of restoring power.

A clerk at the Circle K Gas Station said he heard two “booms”— after the first, the store lost power for about three seconds. The second knocked out the power for good.
