An electric transmission tower has been damaged, and investigators are not ruling out an explosion, although an FBI official stated that no evidence of an explosive device has been found. A maintenance worker, who checks the locations every 30 days, reported a suspicious device at the scene, and residents living around the area reported a loud explosion 10-12 days ago. Although authorities are not certain of the cause, the base of the tower was found bent.

Initial reports indicated that an explosive device had damaged the tower. A maintenance worker, who checks the location every 30 days, reportedly discovered a device at the scene. Residents who live near the tower reported hearing a loud "boom" about 10 to 12 days ago.

FBI Special Agent Lori Bailey later said no evidence of an explosive device had been discovered.

"We're not ruling anything out," Bailey said. "It could be the result of stress and structural damage. It's possible it could have been the result of an improvised explosive device. However, at this point in time, we have recovered no evidence that would lead us to that absolute conclusion."

This report does not indicate for certain the cause for the damage to the tower, although you can see some burn marks were close to the support leg that was damaged and bent.
Perhaps if we have some members living around this area they can shed some light on this story, as i can't find reference to this story anywhere else.

And the maintanence(sp) worker did not report this when he found the suspocious device for what reason? Or the residents, why didn't they report the explosion? Are these people dumb or something?

Exactly what i was thinking, this is probably some teenage anarchists who found the anarchy cook book and decided to test some explosions out.

It also crossed my mind that this could be domestic terrorism/vandalism. Perhaps even some young people pulling off a joke....but who knows.
