ANTIOCH, Tenn. -- A transformer fire in Antioch has thousands of NES customers without power.
All power was restored by 8 a.m. Close to 4,700 customers were without power at the height due to the incident at Bell Road at Brook View Estates Drive.
The fire caused the pole to snap blocking the westbound lanes of Bell Road at the intersection through rush hour traffic.
NES is on scene working to restore power.
