CLOSE CALL: Street blocked after utility pole’s mystery fall

FIRST REPORT, 5:02 PM: Police are blocking 24th SW just south of SW Webster [map], across from Home Depot’s south driveway, right now because a utility pole fell. It fell toward, but between, two of the multiplex residential buildings on the west side of 24th.

No one was hurt. The weather was calm at the time, so the cause of the fall is a mystery so far. (Thanks to the person who texted us about this!)

7:34 PM: Just went by to check; crews are still there working. Also, per the City Light outage map, 90 customers in the vicinity are without electricity.

    Hmm, thanks for the head’s up on this one. We had our utility pole replaced this year. Already there are cracks in the foundation around it. Guess I should call it in.

Sorry, comment time is over.
