Free Press Page 9 Thursday, July 31, 2014 continued from page 1 The 85 customers in the Fish Lake area got their power restored at 7:45 p.m. The final problem area was between North Third, North Fourth, Elm and Nolan Brown, No- land said where 65 cus- tomers were in the dark. "We had everyone's power on shortly before 11 p.m." Noland said. "We were real busy for a while there." The trees this time of year are dry enough they'll kick the line out which has the potential of a fire. "We want to make Sure we don't have a fire- storm going, you know," Noland said. As for the suspected lightning strike on Feeder No. 7, Noland said they were not able to deter- mine exactly where it happened. "Our equipment at the substation tells us what sore of fault it was and It took time he said, The storm produced largest was100 by 75 feet supervisor said.

The continued from page 1 County Fire District 3 truck arrived to monitor the situ- ation and shortly after that a light crew rolled up. Daughter Lindsey, Overlie's ,wife, and his brother, Vaughn, were all in the house when the tree hit. "He thought it was just thunder," Overlie said of his brother's reaction. Overlie's only concern now is that it doesn't rain, and that things get cleaned up by this Saturday, Aug. 2 when the couple's back yard will play host to a . wedding. While it took over four hours to restore power, Overlie realized fire crews had other more pressing business. "Kudos to the fire de- partment and the utilities people," Overlie said. When the lights sud- denly came on, Overlie said he made another 911 call and help arrived within 10 minutes. "When the power came on thaf s when I grabbed a beer," Overlie said.
