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.
