Stacy Pineo, of Nova Scotia Power, said that this latest outage is related to the forest fire in Nictaux. Under the direction of the fire department, they are trying to localize areas that are safe to bring back electricity.
“We’re working with the fire department to sectionalize areas that are safe to restore,” she said. “We’re hoping to have to have most locations back up by 2 p.m.”
There are still a handful of customers in the area that are waiting for storm-related repairs, she said.
