Power cut by Port Hills fires restored

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 15/02/2017

Power has been restored to 89,000 customers whose supply was affected by the fires in Christchurch's Port Hills, lines company Orion says.

However, the supply remains fragile, because of the continuing fire threat.

Smoke or flames had caused the Transpower 220 kV line to trip, affecting supply to parts of eastern Christchurch.
