About 300 people in the Dauphin area will lose power Tuesday when Manitoba Hydro attempts to repair one of its poles.

Hydro said the pole was damaged in a grass fire that got out of control near Dauphin.

Hydro said landowners burning grass should make sure it’s OK to do so by calling their local fire department.
