«Electrified Tree»

Tree meets high voltage lines. This was in Bellingham, Washington on October 3rd, 2009.

ORIGINAL! Bellingham Carolina & Grant St Tree Fire Explosion 10.03.09


  1. Cool. There were some power lines near me today as the gale came blasting through. Left me wondering what would happen if a wire blew down on me.

  2. @ Looney: Well, if it hit you you'd end up like the tree. If it lands next to you, keep your feet as close together as you can.

    Also, even if it stops arcing there's a possibility of a reclosure. It happened to the tree after the explosion; the feeder reclosed.


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
