A truck carrying a metal A-frame hit some low hanging power lines on the 6100 block of Hopkins and snapped the power pole at around 2:40 p.m. Monday.

The downed lines caused a grass fire, which emergency crews quickly responded to and put out. AEP Texas crews were called out to restore the power pole and lines.
