BLOOMINGTON (HOI) — After the heavy winds yesterday, the Bloomington Fire Department is putting out a reminder about electrical dangers.
In a video published on the Department’s Facebook page, a downed electrical line is seen starting sparks on the side of a residential street.
If you see a wire like it, or any fallen wire, you’re advised to leave it alone. BFD says that coming in contact with a live electrical line can potentially be lethal. Be sure to notify the proper authorities if you come across a similar scenario.
