A dump truck with an elevated carrier touched power lines on Monday in Ridgefield.  Firefighters confirmed the incident and called Eversource so they could cut the power.  While waiting on the utility to respond, the truck caught fire.  After the power was controlled, the fire was extinguished.  Fire officials are reminding people to always treat wires as live until determined otherwise by Eversource.
