Glendale firefighters shocked by electrified fence

Posted: Updated:

Five firefighters were zapped with an electrical charge while responding to a fire at a mobile home.

The fire broke out at a mobile home in the area of 67th Ave and Greenway for an unknown reason.

A power line had snapped and somehow charged a fence. The firefighters were not hurt by the charge.

The couple who lived inside the home made it out safely. The 60-year-old husband was transported to a hospital for treatment.

The home is a complete loss.
