power outage

Crews work Saturday to return power to Pine.

A snapped power line left most of Pine without power from about 9:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 8. A resident saw a power line dangling over the storage area at Uncle Tom’s Chevron at the north end of Pine and called 911.

In case the wire was live, Pine-Strawberry Fire Department (PSFD) Capt. Joel Brandt and his crew staged at Uncle Tom’s, keeping people and vehicles away from the area until Arizona Public Service (APS) crews arrived.
