Ranch Matters was contacted tonight by residents that saw the sky lit up down by the Ranch Administration area. Fire was observed and explosions heard and we were asked to check it out.

Confirmed that about 6:15 PM, a Power Line-Wire caught on fire and hit the ground on Chinook across from the Administration area.
They’re waiting on getting a replacement wire and expect it to be repaired within a couple of hours.
Luke said it was an isolated event and did not impact any structures or homes.
