Due to a power pole that was on fire and exploded at the top of the pole, I-25 North and South bound lanes have been closed near Pueblo's downtown area.
South bound is closed at 13th Street and North bound is closed at 1st St. Traffic is being diverted.
Fire personnel stated that if the pole was to fall, it would fall across both North and South bound lanes.
Black Hills energy is on scene making repairs. A Black Hills spokesperson has stated that it could be another hour to an hour and a half before I-25 can be re-opened.
