Crash, Fires Knock Out Power for More Than 3,000 in South Jordan

SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (ABC4 Utah) About 140 homes are still without power after 9:30 p.m. Wednesday in South Jordan. 
 
It all started when a dump truck knocked over some power lines closing 10200 South between Bangerter Higway and 4000 South in South Jordan. 
 
Those downed power lines then sparked a two-alarm house fire impacting two neighboring homes. 
 
"As far as the residents go we're not quite sure how long the power is going to be out. Rocky Mountain is on scene assessing that situation, so hopefully we'll know shortly. But like I said the fortunate thing is nobody was injured," said Lt. Matt Pennington with South Jordan Police Department. 
 
The incident initially knocked out power for more than 3,100 customers. Three power poles were pulled out the ground by the dump truck. Pennington says of the two homes that caught fire only one was serious damaged.
