Pender County Blackout

Found a local news article talking about the power outage Sunday night. From what I’ve heard, the power company workers started fixing the pole at around 11:30 PM.

More than 4,000 homes in Burgaw, Rocky Point and other areas lost power for about an hour and a half.

A spokesperson for Four County Electric said a farmer burning a wheat field damaged a power pole that served several communities causing the blackout

The spokesperson said everything has now been fixed.

No word on whether the farmer will be fined for the repairs.
