Here's the best video of the day, or even the week, and as found on this Firegeezer posting. Linesman rescues linesman after bucket truck catches transformer on fire. Brace yourself for the tire explosion at 1:09. Somerville, MA. See 'geezer posting for more.

I wonder if they teach bucket bail outs at the local electric company?

Tire on the truck blew. Nicely helped to lessen the amount of fire damaging the truck. I guess they teach linemen like they teach garbage men. Save the truck!
