DARIEN — The Post Road was temporarily closed between Gardiner Street and Hampton Road after a wire in the road caught fire Wednesday morning.

Darien Police said the blocked-off portion of the road was reopened less than an hour after Eversource crews arrived on the scene. A primary electrical wire on the road was burning and arcing, causing the road to be closed to motorists and residents. Officers arrived on scene to assist with safety and detours.

There were no injuries or damage. The roadway reopened around 9:15 a.m.
