NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A busy Antioch thoroughfare was closed for most of the day Tuesday after an electrical pole caught fire and snapped.

It happened around 5 a.m. on Bell Road near Brookview Estates Drive.

Bell Road was closed between Blue Hole Road and Cedarmont Drive but reopened mid-afternoon.

Officials on the scene told News 2 a blown transformer likely sparked the blaze.

No injuries were reported.

Nearly 5,000 Nashville Electric Service customers were without service for a time. Power was restored to most by 8 a.m.
