November 19, 2019
Location: Port Coquitlam, BC
Regulated industry sector: Electrical - Low voltage electrical system (30V to 750V)
A melted overhead conductor on a 120/240 Volt service resulted in fire damage to a home’s communication boxes, cables and the surrounding walls and ceilings in the carport. Lack of separation between the neutral and the service line conductor compression connectors was the likely cause of the incident.
