CAUTION: Avoid downed power lines and poles

Richard Spring Wildfire
Announcements – 8/11/2021

Tongue River Electric Cooperative (TRECO) is cautioning that there are numerous downed power lines and poles within the boundary and adjacent to the Richard Spring Fire. They ask that people avoid these areas, as some of these lines are still "hot" and could be dangerous. TRECO is working to replace these power lines and poles as quickly and safely as possible, but it may take 3 to 5 days for power to be restored.
