Just when power was returning to many homes in town following the Aug. 10 "derecho," a transformer failed in the 900 block of South Madison Street on Aug. 11 creating an outage for homes on several nearby streets. Firefighters were called to the scene as an arcing power line created a small fire. Hinsdale firefighter/paramedic Mike Lorusso soaks down a fence that had caught fire.
