Downed utility line melts pavement, boils water in Bethel

A downed utility line in Bethel caused the pavement to melt Saturday night.  Payne Road was closed into early Sunday morning because the utility line caught fire.  Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Company says the intensity and temperature caused the 2,000 gallons of water on the affected area to instantly boil.  Department officials say this is a prime example of why downed power lines should be treated as live, to avoid the area and call 911.  Eversource mitigated the hazard and Payne Road reopened.
