WALLINGFORD — A local man reported an electrical hazard while working around his house on Hoffman Court but was not injured, emergency crews determined on Friday evening.

Crews were dispatched about 6:40 p.m. to determine if downed wires outside the home struck the man. Police temporarily blocked traffic on Center Street between North Elm Street and the construction area by Gianotti Court.

Fire officials said there was a burning cable wire, but no lines fell on the man and no one was injured.

A representative at the Wallingford Electric Division said there were no outages.
