Hicks Road was still closed Friday morning at 9:15 a.m. between Kirchoff Road and Euclid Avenue after a semi-trailer truck snagged some sagging power lines on Hicks Road, just north of Kirchoff Road Thursday evening. The contact of the truck with power lines brought down four utility poles, a tree, a spaghetti mess of power lines, and started a grass fire. Com Ed is working to replace the utility poles and replace the power lines.

Rolling Meadows police and firefighters received a report about 6:53 p.m. Thursday of a power line down at Kirchoff Road and Hicks Road. Emergency responders were updated that a semi-trailer truck snagged power lines across Hicks Road, just north of Kirchoff Road. Firefighters also received a report of a fire behind the Marathon station with power lines down on cars — apparently parked cars. Numerous business in the area had a power surge.

The first firefighters on the scene reported a brush fire and multiple power lines down. Four utility poles were snapped by the pull of the truck on the power lines. A large power outage occurred and several business has activated fire and/or security alarms.

The intersection of Kirchoff Road and Hicks was closed for an extended period. Hicks Road and the frontage road south of Kirchoff were also blocked for an extended period.
