Roads reopen after transformer fire

CRYSTAL LAKE – Ackman and Golf Course roads were closed for an hour Friday because of a transformer fire on an electric pole that closed the intersection.

Crystal Lake police Cmdr. Scott Miller said the transformer blew and was causing some isolated sparks.

The Crystal Lake Fire Department requested a temporary closure of the area of Ackman Road from Westport Ridge to Golf Course Road.

ComEd fixed the transformer about noon, and the roads were reopened by 1:20 p.m.
