This morning, at around 5:30, Samson Police Officer Keith Shehee advised 34 Central that he had received a call that there was a power line possibly down on the ground and sparking on Geneva County Road 5. When Officer Shehee arrived on scene he did find not one, but two power lines on the ground sparking. 34 Central then dispatched Samson Volunteer Fire Department to the scene. Samson Firefighter Matt Odom responded to the scene with Samson Engine 31 until Wiregrass Electric arrived on scene and turned the power off to the fallen lines. One line had reached the creek below causing sparks. Another line was in a field sparking. It was a great fireworks show!
