Dibble Road shut down after power line catches tree on fire

AIKEN, SC (WFXG) - Dibble Road in Aiken is shut down as crews continue to clean up a downed tree and power line.

Troopers on the scene confirm the power lines are being put back up on the 400 block of Old Dibble Road. A tree caught fire when it fell on the lines.

Officials from Aiken Electric Cooperative said the tree tore down two phases of wire, but power should be restored to residents at this point.

Our crew on the scene said about 3/4 of a mile of the roadway is blocked off while work is being done.
