A fire on a power pole on Redwood Crescent in Youngtown has caused power outages.
TasNetworks have said 1053 residences have been left without power due to the blaze.
Tasmania Fire Service was called to the fire around 4pm.
A TFS spokesperson said the fire has been extinguished and TasNetworks were on the scene assessing the situation.
The fire was the second for the day associated with electrical equipment after an earlier fire in Wyena was caused by an overheated solar converter.
More to come.
