People in an Oregon neighborhood are facing thousands of dollars in damages after a Toledo Edison transformer caught fire. They claim knew something was wrong and told Toledo Edison weeks in advance, but the company didn’t do anything.
“I’ve been calling around to Toledo Edison. Edison says, ‘Call the City of Toledo.’ Toledo says, ‘Call the cable company.’ Cable company says, ‘Call the mayor.’ Everybody is passing the buck,” Fortson said.
