As firefighters were responding on those alarms, Lawrence Police were called to the 1500 block of Tennessee Street for a vehicle versus utility pole accident. Firefighters were also called to this scene after receiving a report that the vehicle was catching fire. Police reported that the vehicle was not on fire, only steam but, requested that firefighters continue to check the utility pole. Firefighters arrived to report one vehicle with heavy damage. The driver was not injured. Firefighters reported a fuse on the utility pole had tripped, likely causing the automatic fire alarms to trip in the area. Police arrested the driver, who now faces charges of OUI, No Insurance and Driving without a valid driver's license.

Westar Energy's website only showed one customer without electricity in the area. That service was restored about an hour later.
