Frontier Communications internet service for Berkeley Springs and much of Morgan County has been out for much of the day.
In southern Morgan County, internet service has been out for more than six hours.
“Frontier Communications crews are currently working to repair fiber optic lines, which were damaged by a fire caused by downed power lines,” said Frontier spokesperson Javier Mendoza. “The damage is disrupting internet service to some customers in Morgan County. We want to reassure customers we are actively addressing this issue and thank them for their patience as we complete repairs and restore service.”
Mendoza said that information regarding the location of the fire or how much of Morgan County was affected was “not available.”
