NORTH CONWAY, N.H. (AP) - A power company spokesman says a brief power outage in the North Conway area wasn’t the work of vandals after all.

Seth Wheeler of the New Hampshire Electric Co-op told WMWV-FM that crews responding to Sunday’s outage initially believed that a number of insulators on power poles had been shot out, causing a fire on one pole. But after further investigation, workers realized that a tree had fallen on a span of wire, causing insulators in both directions to break.

The tree wasn’t immediately visible to the crew, and since it didn’t break the wires or poles, the cracked insulators appeared to have been damaged by bullets.
