KENNEWICK, Wash.--A power line short circuits, snaps and falls to the ground.

It happened at the intersection of East Bruneau Avenue and North Gum Street around 4:30 p.m. Thursday (July 17th) afternoon.

Kennewick firefighters say the event caused a small fire to start at the bottom of a pole across the street.

However, a driver and former volunteer firefighter, put the fire out with a shovel.

It's unknown if any local businesses lost power.

No one was injured.
