UPDATED: Power Restored, Scott Blvd Reopened

UPDATE:  The Decatur Minute is now saying that Scott has reopened.

Some of you are already discussing this in FFAF.  Here’s an update from The Decatur Minute

August 3 • 9:00 a.m.

A power pole on Scott Blvd caught fire last night so the power is out on Scott Blvd from Willow Lane to Superior Avenue. Decatur Public Safety and Georgia Power are on scene and it is estimated that the repairs should take two to three hours. Be advised that the two in-bound lanes on Scott Blvd are blocked, so use alternate streets if you must travel in this area.

Check back for any updates.

  1. Our street, Pensdale Rd, is being used as an alternate route (SLOW DOWN!!) and a similar incident happened on Monday night.
    Branch broke, hit the line, broke the line, sparks, boom!, power out, me awake, slow fire on the tree.
    Dekalb County was on the scene in minutes. Ga Power was here soon after. It was cleaned up, fire out, and power restored within an hour. Yay!
