Lights go off temporarily in Ardmore

By  | 

ARDMORE- Three OG&E workers had quite a scare in Ardmore this afternoon after a light pole they were working on tumbled on top of a power line.

As soon as the light pole hit the line on South Commerce Street, it sent sparks flying and caused the truck to catch fire.

Luckily the crew anticipated what was about to happen and jumped out of the way unharmed. Ardmore firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze.

Home and businesses in a two-square-mile area were without electricity for a while, but OG&E crews were able to restore power within an hour.
