A DANGEROUS SITUATION IN BIG LAKE . A live power line sent sparks arcing above the 500 pound LP gas tank at SA Monday when a power pole broke and fell down across Hwy. 10, knocking out power to 60 customers and closing the highway in both directions for two hours. An Xcel Energy repair crew came out to fix the problem. (Submitted photo).
