Pune, 14th February 2023: Three 22 KV power lines of Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) were burnt due to garbage burning on a stream bridge near Nanded City Gate on Sinhagad Road. As a result, electricity supply was interrupted for one and a half hours in the area of Nandedgaon, Khadakwasla, Kirkatwadi, Vadgaon Khurd, and part of Dhayari due to the interruption of power supply of two sub-stations.

The garbage was dumped on the bank of the bridge, and an unknown person set it on fire. The burning garbage caused the power lines to catch fire, and the power supply of about 18,500 consumers was interrupted.

After the fire brigade extinguished the fire, MSEDCL officials took measures for alternative power supply, and electricity supply was restored to all consumers in a phased manner within one and a half to two and a half hours. A complaint has been filed against the person who set the garbage on fire at the police station.

MSEDCL has appealed to citizens not to dump or burn garbage near the electricity system, as it poses a danger to the system and causes power outages. Citizens should not throw wet and dry garbage in public places, around transformers, or near feeder pillars, and they should not burn stored waste.

MSEDCL has provided a toll-free number (1912/18002123435 or 18002333435) for citizens to report such incidents, which is open 24 hours a day.
