Light pole crashes down near grocery store

A lamp pole lies in a pool of water as heavy rain and melting snow crease a large puddle in front of the Valley Grocery in Alberton on Thursday evening. (Kathleen Woodford/Mineral Independent).

A lamp pole fell next to Valley Grocery in Alberton at approximately 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 9., prompting the Frenchtown Fire Department to close down Railroad Avenue until Northwestern Energy crews could cut the power to the pole.

The power line was connected to another pole on the other side of the street and a live wire was down on the road. Once the power was cut, the pole was removed.

On Friday morning, NorthWestern Energy returned to restore power to existing lamp poles. Fire department chief Joe Calnan did not know what caused the pole to fall.
