August 08, 1998

Traffic along northbound Interstate 95 was delayed for more than two hours yesterday as firefighters and electrical workers battled an electrical fire on a transformer pole alongside the interstate near Route 175.

Maryland state police said the fire started about 4: 15 p.m. when the transformer malfunctioned.

Police diverted traffic to Route 175, Columbia's main east-west thoroughfare, while Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. workers fixed the transformer, state police said. No one was injured in the incident.
