BEND, OR -- A Cascade Disposal garbage truck hooked a power line near the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank on SE Third Street in Bend. Fire crews responded just before 10 a.m. Tuesday, and say the truck pulled the weatherhead away from the building and causing the electrical line to arc. Smoke was seen on the outside of the building.

 

Firefighters used a dry chemical to prevent the fire from burning wires and igniting the structure. A thermal imaging camera recorded the temperature of the line conduit at well over 400 degrees.
