Vernon Fire Rescue Services blocked off traffic at 18 Avenue and 42 A Street after some telephone lines fell across the intersection.
Fire Rescue received the call just before 10 a.m. Thursday morning. Fire trucks were posted on either side of the intersection to keep traffic away from the mess of lines.
At 10:23 a.m. firefighters had cleared the lines from the middle of the road and allowed traffic to resume. The lines are still hanging from polls near the sidewalk but are not hazardous.
