A transformer caught on fire on Hurt Street in Martin last Thursday knocking out power at the University of Tennessee at Martin. According to witnesses, a truck owned by Volunteer Express hit a low-hanging power line that sparked the explosion. A truck owned by UT Martin senior Jordon Cain of Chattanooga was damaged in the blast. Cain said he was headed home to surprise his father for Father’s Day but gave him a different surprise when he called home to tell him about the blaze. No one was hurt in the fire.
