Fire cuts power for 150 in Pensnett

By Jordan Reynolds | Dudley | News | Published:

More than 150 homes were without power overnight in Pensnett after a fire.

Just after 11pm last night a fault in a piece of equipment in Bryce Road was reported which had affected 156 customers.

Western Power said engineers worked throughout the night and all power was restored by 6am today.

A spokeswoman said: "We had a fault in a piece of equipment that was reported just after 11pm last night, it affected 156 customers.

"Engineers went to the site to investigate.

"They ruled out a temporary repair as it would have restored all customers on a short-term basis but there would be further outages so they worked throughout the night and did a permanent repair instead.

"All supplies were restored by 6am."
