LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Boulder City Fire Department was working Friday to extinguish two house fires caused when a backyard pole ignited and collapsed, according to a social media post by the city’s police department.
The Facebook post from about shortly after 4 p.m. showed fire crews working to put out the fires on Wyoming Street.
Police said in the post that a backyard pole caught fire, burned down and dropped on a transformer.
Some 25 to 30 customers lost power because of the downed transformer, the post said.
The post asked people to avoid an area of Wyoming Street from Northridge to Cayuga.
