Insulation has rubbed off one of the power lines (think it supplies the street lights?)and every time there is a storm there are two wires rubbing together, causing great showers of sparks from the two uninsulated wires rubbing together. I'm concerned this is a safety/fire hazard. Pole number 14819, outside 14 Mills Rd on the downhill section heading down Gowrie St. Thanks Dave Wild.
