The power is back on this morning after a power pole caught fire on 3rd Avenue and East Madison Street yesterday afternoon. Alliant Energy turned power off due to the fire affecting 1460 customers for a short period of time. The Washington Fire Department responded to the scene and the fire was put out by Alliant Energy crews. KCII will continue to follow this story and bring you more information as it becomes official.
