A tree brought down a main transmission line this morning in Chatham. It happened just before 9:30 in an area off Locust Street, by the railroad tracks. According to Chatham Fire Officials, the incident caused a transformer fire, that knocked out power. NYSEG was called to the scene. Locust Street was closed, and CSX train traffic was stopped until the lines were repaired.
