Update: RS fan that lived next door said that there was an animal on top of the wires/pole. That caused the smoke in the area, that was originally believed to have been the transformer.
No transformer fire or power outage.
Around 7:45 PM emergency personnel were dispatched for a possible fire in Machesney Park. Scanner traffic is saying a transformer is on fire on a pole in the 500 block of Maple.
There is a lot of smoke from the fire in the area and the power is also out in the area.
The fire was quickly extinguished.
It is not yet known on the cause of the fire or the estimated restore time for the power outage.
