Electrical pole fire closes Olive street in St. Louis County
ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – An electrical fire on an electric pole has closed a major road in St. Louis County. Olive from Lindbergh to Warson is closed in both directions. Ameren crews are on the scene.
The road has been closed down as a precaution. Utility workers are worried that electric wires could fall on motorists.
Ameren says that the earlier report of a transformer explosion is inaccurate. It was a malfunctioning insulator in the pole that caused the fire.
