EnergySafety carried out an investigation into the bushfire at Yallingup and found that a 22kV Cable Head Termination on a Western Power concrete pole failed as a result of the cable’s paper insulation failure. This failure resulted in a short circuit and explosion causing hot molten metal fragments to ignite the dry grass at the base of the pole which started the bushfire.
