Johnston, RI

Umm the spokesman has it wrong. The "downed lined" happened after the transformers became overloaded and caused a fire on the lines which then downed the lines. The lines were fine until the power surge/transformers became overwhelmed and caused the substantial fire. Obviously they are trying to distance themselves from a "my bad" scenario.
