A blown transformer on a pole.
Happens a lot more than you would think.

Transformers blowing don't arc along the line like that, they blow up rather impressively and loudly.
I had an electric line break onfront of my house (other side of the block).
My room lit up as if we were standing onfront of the sun!
The whole house was vibrating and the sound of the electricity was tense!
Son after they decided to shut the power of the whole city off. Me and my friends went to look at the wire and it had soldered a 3 foot hole on the ground.
The worst of it was the fact that it landed 2 feet away from a car...things could had gone alot worse...
Electricity is intense!
