SPEEGLEVILLE, Texas (KWTX) A power pole that caught fire Wednesday snarled evening rush hour traffic after the wire became draped across the highway.

The fire occurred near the intersection of North Speegleville Road and Highway 6, just past the Twin Bridges.

The Oncor power outage map showed 135 customers were left in the dark as a result.

The lanes in all directions were shutdown for more than an hour.
