A loud thunderous boom, a momentary loss of power, and I was alerted to look outside our windows to view an electrical fire just a few blocks up West Street near Pinkey’s Liquor Store and Carlson’s Bakery and Thai Kitchen. Flames were high due to all the water on the ground serving to conduct the electricity.
Within minutes fire engines had arrived and the power line was cut in the interests of safety. Never approach grounded or loose electrical wires, particularly during a storm. Fortunately, no one appeared to be hurt.
