Portions of Rollingwood Country Estates and the Curtis Community were without power for a few hours on Friday after a power line fell and caused a small fire.

The Jasper Fire Department responded to County Road 185 in Rollingwood at about 4:00 Friday afternoon when it was reported that the LIVE electric line was down behind a house. Fortunately, the recent rains had saturated the ground and vegetation so the small blaze didn’t spread.

A crew from Jasper-Newton Electric Cooperative fully restored power to the affected area at about 7:30 that evening.
