NORTH CONWAY, N.H. (AP) - A spokesman for a power company says a brief power outage Sunday in the North Conway area was caused when vandals shot at insulators on power poles.
Seth Wheeler of New Hampshire Electric Co-op tells WMWV-FM that power went off for about 3,000 customers around 7:30 Sunday morning.
He says crews found what looked like a number of insulators on power poles had been shot out, causing a fire on one pole.
He says workers got the power back on about an hour later. The repair work took longer and was more dangerous because the line was still on.
The vandalism happened in an unpopulated area off a cross country ski trail.
There's no word of any suspects.
