Cable chaos

EMERGENCY services were called to a Mildura intersection yesterday over fears of a gas leak after an underground power cable was struck while work was being carried out at the site. 

Mildura Fire Brigade senior station officer Malcolm Hayes said crews attended the intersection of Eleventh Street and Benetook Avenue about 12.30pm after an “explosion”. 

“On arrival there was a ground boring crew there that we believe struck an underground power line,” Mr Hayes said.
