Fires linked to smart meters?Posted by: 3AW Radio | 7 November, 2011 – 9:35 AM. The Metropolitan Fire Brigade says there is no cause for public alarm after it launched an official investigation into fires, linked to Smart Meters. Brigade Command has ordered all firefighters to report fires, where smart meters are present and has advised officers not to allow power companies to take the meters from the scene. There have been three smart meter switchboard fires in recent weeks. Chief Fire Officer Shane Wright says its a standard procedure and at this stage there is no firm link with the meters.
