Northwestel landline phone service down in N.W.T., Yukon

Northwestel's phone service is down in the Northwest Territories and Yukon.

The disruption is to land line phone service only.

Internet service is also disrupted along the Mackenzie Valley.

Technicians are currently working to find the problem.

It's believed heavy winds and a forest fire that happened late yesterday evening may be to blame.
