“Transmission tower fire interrupts Channel 3 broadcast signal

STOWE, Vt. (WCAX) A fire at our transmission tower on Mount Mansfield has interrupted the Channel 3 broadcast signal.

The fire at our tower in Stowe was discovered at about 2:45 p.m. Tuesday when one of our engineers went to investigate trouble with the signal.

Fire crews and our crews are at the scene. No one is hurt and nothing else is burning.

We are working to try to get our signal back out as soon as possible but it’s not yet clear how long that will take. In the meantime, you can watch the Channel 3 News streaming live on our website, www.wcax.com.

WCAX co-owns that tower and transmission line with WPTZ.”
