A utility pole has fallen onto the power lines on Nicholson Lane in Rockville in front of Far East Restaurant after a vehicle struck the pole late last night causing a vehicle fire.
The driver was evaluated and refused transportation. The pole was sheared in half and a wheel from the vehicle ended up in a nearby Pizza Hut.
Some lanes have been closed and some surrounding businesses do not have power.
