PUEBLO, Colo. -

I-25 between 1st Street and 6th Street was closed for around 2 hours Wednesday night in both directions due to an electrical pole fire.

Fire personnel stated that if the pole was to fall it would fall across both North and South bound lanes.

Black Hill energy made repairs and the highway is now back open.
