It will be a few more days before WCAX over-the-air viewers get their signal back following a fire at the Mt. Mansfield Transmitter last week.

A project like this would usually take months to finish and crews are trying to do it in just days. We have new photos taken by our engineers on top of Mount Mansfield and you can see just how snowy and ice-covered it is up there.

A special team is working to replace the antenna. We still don't know exactly when everything will be up and running again, but crews are trying to do it as quickly and as safely as possible.

The Channel 3 signal is now back on the Dish Network, DIRECTV, Xfinity/Comcast and Charter/Spectrum-- that reaches about 80 percent of our audience. You can also watch our news streaming live on our website and mobile app.
