There has been another power meter fire in Regina.
The most recent fire happened Tuesday afternoon at a home in north Regina.
This is the ninth meter fire in the city since July 16th.
SaskPower says the fires have all been caused by shifting ground due to dry conditions.
Crews have been out inspecting homes in Uplands, Normanview and Glencairn neighbourhoods.
The company estimates there are a total of are 9,000 homes that need to be inspected.
SaskPower says they're also encouraging homeowners to visually inspect their meters themselves - looking for tilted boxes and exposed wires.
Anyone with concerns can contact SaskPower directly.
