PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A power line caused some scary moments when it snapped and caused a fire in Bloomfield Monday evening.

It happened around 7 p.m. in the 600 block of Edmond Street.

Officials say the wire snapped and swung away from the pole, hitting the porch of a home and catching it on fire.

No word on what caused the line to snap.
