UPDATE: North Delridge power outage, street closure after pole fire

8:32 PM: Thanks to the texter who sent that photo of the pole fire that’s caused some trouble near Delridge Playfield tonight. More than 70 customers have lost power, according to the City Light map. And Metro has diverted buses off the Oregon/22nd route uphill from Delridge Way.

8:59 PM: Another texter says Oregon is taped off at Delridge and that the Delridge/Oregon light is out.

    Any idea why 125 is being routed on Delridge instead of 22nd, 23rd,a nd 16th by SSC? The Metro alert didn’t say why

      According to some additional info I’m adding, Oregon/22nd is blocked at Delridge because of this.

    Power was out in our building last night because of this. I saw embers floating down from the pole when I first went out to look. Here’s a photo I took of the fire being put out when the fire department arrived.
