Truck snags power line, sparks outage

A hydraulic truck hooked a power line shortly before noon today, triggering a power outage for some businesses along 9th Ave. NW near the Fred Meyer, says MyBallard reader AlanBob. “Four transformers had short-circuited, showering the street with sparks,” he writes. “The air itself smelled overcooked.”

Fortunately, no reports of any injuries. (Thanks AlanBob for the tip and photo!)
