OGDEN -- A power pole in Ogden burst into flames Friday, and firefighters say it was likely the work of a bird.

Fire crews had to wait for Rocky Mountain Power to arrive at Lincoln Avenue and 26th Street. Once crews were able to turn the power off, firefighters stepped in to put out the fire.

Investigators say a bird somehow caused a short in the lines, and that started the fire.
