CLEVELAND, Ohio — A terrifying ordeal for a utility worker on a cherry picker along I-90. A power pole caught on fire just before 3:30 a.m. near E. 152nd St. I-90 was closed in both directions from Eddy Rd. to E. 156th St. The interstate has since been reopened in both directions. It continued to burn until it snapped around 5:15 a.m. A utility worker was working on the wires when a semi drove by pulling the wires from the dangling section of the pole. The worker jumped out of the way and was not hurt.
