Gee, I’m sure the property owner is very grateful to the distributor for being so quick off the mark to remove that potentially dangerous smart meter. They wouldn’t want the meter left there to go up in flames yet again, would they?
And I’ll bet the fire investigators are pleased to be spared the effort of investigating one of the possible causes of the fire, now that the evidence has been hastily removed. It can be tricky to get your mind around how those high tech electrical devices connected to old wiring can cause fires.
In the same area some time ago the power distributor was not quick enough to beat the photographer to the scene.
You have to get to the property before the smoke dies down if you want to beat the power distributor to remove the evidence.
