A house caught on fire down the street. Fire was erupting through the windows on the second floor and burned off the CL&P service from the pole. Every time the neutral and one of the conductors touched, it was like a gun shot going off. The triplex jumped off the ground about 2 feet and came back together on the ground. I can't imagine the amperage going through that but it never tripped the power company's breaker. They had to manually disconnect so the fire dept. could work the scene.
