RPU responds to power pole on fire in SE Rochester

(ABC 6 News) – The Rochester Fire Department and Rochester Public Utilities responded to an electric pole on fire in Southeast Rochester Monday afternoon.

Crews responded to a neighborhood near the Rochester Pentecostal Church on Scheffield Lane SE around 1:40 p.m.

Tony Benson with RPU said they are unaware of the cause of the fire at this time, but he said RPU line crews respond to power pole fires more often than we think.

Crews were working in the area Monday afternoon to repair damages.

Benson said he is not aware of any power outages in Rochester because of the fire.
