Hazardous extinguishing, electric pole spreads spark and arc

Arriving at the scene, several assault teams wearing respiratory protection began an immediate extinguishing attack. Suddenly there was a spark in the wooden electric pole. There are many sparks. The AU Fire Brigade turntable is in the ladder position and supports the extinguishing work from above. Electricity suppliers are worried. The wooden electric pole glows, but can be completely extinguished only after the power is turned off. The fire brigade was successful in containing the flames from spreading directly to the adjoining residential building.
