There are several downed power lines in Conway and Faulkner County after this afternoon’s squall.
Some, including one on 2nd Avenue, were live and burning. Conway Fire Chief Mike Winter said that anyone who sees a downed power line should call 9-1-1 to report it, and firefighters will secure the scene until Conway Corp workers get there to fix it. There’s not much firefighters can do with a power line electrical fire except keep traffic and people away from it and put out whatever collateral fires it starts, Winter said.
There are localized power outages in Conway, including in the 2nd Avenue area.
