    For only 2 transformers going out it made 6 big explosions.Everyone on Golden Ave. living west of 6 1/2 mile road came running out of there house to see what happened.Emmett Fire was called to the scene about 1 1/2 hours earlier because the wires on the pole in the parking lot of Cereal city recycling were glowing red.Then after about 1 1/2 hours i could hear six explosions and it lit the sky by my house on Golden Ave. . The explosions were so loud they shook our house.Thought for sure CCR was going to catch on fire again.
