600 homes without power

ABOUT 600 properties north of Rockhampton are currently without power.

Ergon Energy Central Region Corporate Communications manager Bob Pleash said power to these Ergon Energy customers was disrupted at 1.44am.

He said the customers affected, between Clairview and Kunwarara, was due to two power poles on the main line being burnt in a bush fire overnight.

"We expect power to be restored by 1pm today," Mr Pleash said.
