Fire call

Traffic was slowed on the edge of downtown Timmins today when a transformer caught fire on a utility pole on Spruce Street in front of the old Nativity church. It happen just before 4 p.m. Witnesses told police they heard a loud bang and then saw the transformer case on fire. Because electricity was still alive on the pole, firefighters were not able to extinguish the fire until Hydro One crews arrived on the scene.
