Transformer Explodes, Starts Backyard Fire Near KICKS 105
It was just a few short weeks ago when a drunk driver on Raguet Street lost control of their vehicle and took out our radio station sign, destroyed some shrubbery, and mangled our huge station generator.
So, when I heard a large pop just outside the KICKS 105 Control Room window, I was hoping that history wasn't repeating itself. As the employees of KICKS 105 ventured outside, we noticed some smoke coming from a few houses down the road. In just a few minutes, the Lufkin Fire Department arrived and quickly extinguished the blaze. (check out the video above)
No word on what caused the transformer to blow.
