Sun., 1:57 pm: Fires burning in Vienna

VIENNA Four transformers exploded early this morning, causing multiple fires along downed lines and trapping residents inside their homes.

The fires are along Sodom Hutchings Road and Pin Oak Drive, just south of state Route 82.

Former township trustee Mark Finamore said that police and fire are having difficulty reaching the fires, which are off the roads. Residents have been told to stay indoors so as not to come into contact with wire.

The first calls came in about 1:30 a.m.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
