Transformer fire knocks out power to Chester


CHESTER - Most of the residents of Chester as well as a number of residents of Candia lost power for about three hours early Thursday morning due to a transformer fire on North Pond Road, according to fire chief Richard Antoine.

A tree fell across several primary power lines, causing the tree and a transformer to catch fire and knocking down several wires.

The fire department and repair crews responded, and power was back up to everyone as of 5:30 this morning, according to Antoine.

No one was hurt as a result of the transformer fire or downed lines.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
