(KMOV.com) – Firefighters were on the scene of a utility pole fire in Kirkwood Tuesday afternoon.

Firefighters told News 4 a pole owned by Ameren that feeds into a substation in Kirkwood caught on fire and burned in half before snapping cross ties on four other poles.

Officials have closed down Dougherty Ferry Road from just east of Poinsettia to Geyer for the remainder of Tuesday.

Many customers lost power as result, but Ameren said electricity has been restored.
