Since early March, around 100 wooden utility poles from CPS Energy have caught fire in San Antonio. On Tuesday, fires caused at least two power outages in parts of the utility’s service area.
CPS officials attribute the fires to dry conditions and high levels of pollen, causing dust and dirt to accumulate on the insulators. These are the devices, porcelain or polymer, that hold the power lines to the top of the pole and prevent the power lines from touching.
