Crews in Elma were dealing with a fire overnight that was caused by high tension power lines crashing down.

The fire happened in a field off Bullis Road around 3:00 a.m. Wednesday.  The power lines on the ground were arcing, which sparked the small fire.  Emergency crews were able to make sure the power was turned off, and put out the fire.
