Station 8 was dispatched this morning for the report of a pole fire on Route 287 south of Route 328 in Lawrence Township. Chief 8 (Strange) arrived on scene and reported a transformer had exploded on the pole and caught fire with a small wildfire at the base of the pole. Bystanders had stopped the wildfire with extinguishers. Engine 8-3 with a crew of 4, Squad 8-18, and Chief 8-60 (Buttton) all responded. Upon arrival, units setup a safety zone and closed the traffic lane adjacent to the pole. Penelec arrived on scene and disconnected the power and extinguished the fire on the pole. All units cleared shortly after.
