Small fire along east end LRT line

Just minor damage was reported after a pole along the LRT caught fire on Thursday.


Smoke was spotted coming from the line on Labelle Street, near Cyrville Road around 12:07 p.m.


There were concerns about the electrical component on the pole so Ottawa Fire called in extra crews.


By the time they arrived, the flames had been extinguished by LRT workers and the power had been shut off.


There were no injuries reported.
