Because of the snowy conditions and heavy accumulation, problems arose with some power lines in the area. Some bushes caught fire near Pleasant Grove
Elementary School after two power lines exploded, thankfully the fire was put out immediately and nothing was damaged near the school. The power line break was weather related. The call to the power company came in around 8:30 this morning and workers were out fixing the lines as soon as they got word. The fire burned itself out because of the cold and snow, however the lines that were down was the main concern since it was so close to the school building. Thankfully there was no danger to the school and lines were patched up and working again by 11am. Only one electrical server was affected.
