Electrical Fire Causes Major Phone Outage

An electrical fire on a pole on Hillspoint Road at Chestnut Lane, just south of Post Road East, today knocked out power, phone and cable TV service to a wide area of Westport. The electrical and cable service was restored within hours, according to a SBC supervisor on the scene, but telephone service remained out to more than 1,200 customers by late today. Seth Bloom, an SBC spokesman, told WestportNow tonight all service should be restored by noon Thursday. photo
