Power is out to all of Digby Neck, Long Island and Brier Islands.

A pole fire in Seabrook has put out power to 1330 customers in Digby County. This is the third time in two weeks that everyone on the Islands has lost their power.

It appears the insulator on top of the pole fell off causing the lines to arc and burn down through the pole.

The pole in question is on the side of Hwy 217 just a few kilometres outside of Digby.

Nova Scotia Power’s live outage website says the power should be back on by 6:45 p.m.

Organizations: Nova Scotia Power

Geographic location: Seabrook, Digby County, Long Island Brier Islands
