Live power lines were brought down tonight along Meadowbrook Road by the rain and windy weather, igniting a fire that burned both wires and a utility pole.

As of 7:45 p.m., about 800 customers in the area -- or 3.35 percent of the townwide total -- had lost power, according to the United Illuminating Co. website.
