Transformer blows during storm

On February 9th during the snow storm Engine 12-91 was dispatched around 8:45AM for a wires call. When the Engine arrived on location the top of the pole at Chapel Ave and Spruce St. was on fire. Crews secured the area until PSE&G could secure the power. While awaiting their arrival the wires dropped arcing and sparking. Once the power was secured the pole was extinguished. Power is still out in the area at the time of this posting with unknown time of return. Power was restored.
