LONGMEADOW, MA (WSHM) -

Shaker Road in Longmeadow is now closed after power lines caught on fire early Thursday morning.

The road is closed from Laurel Street to Hazzardville Road.

According to officials, a large tree limb took down power lines causing them to erupt into a fire.

WMECO has since cut the power.

Crews are on the scene removing the limb and repairing the lines. The road is expected to open again at 1 p.m.
