ST. GEORGE – A transformer box blew up and caught fire last night in the area of 700 S and 100 E, causing power outage and traffic flow problems.
Dixie High’s football game with Snow Canyon was in play at the time, and was suspended for a short interval until power was restored. Nearby residents reported power failure as well.
St. George Fire Department was able to extinguish the fire without significant incident and St. George Police managed traffic control until the fire responders’ clean up was accomplished.
