DANBURY — Firefighters have responded to 351 Main St., where a transformer on a leaning utility pole started a “small brush fire” near a vacant garage.

Eversource has been called to the scene to stop the flow of electricity to the pole.

Personnel on scene report that the pole’s two transformers “don’t appear to be leaking at this time,” but can’t confirm it.
