Fire totals Cell tower (with Video)

I’ve told you guys about sites being torn down.

I’ve told you about Green Peace Freaks trashing towers.

But a Cell tower Fire?

Actually it happens more often than you would think, and it’s typically not pretty.

Take this AT&T Monopole that was a multi-carrier unit (in other words, other carriers rented space on the tower for their own systems. A fairly common practice) that went up in flames in New Jersey.

Fair warning, there is some hard language.

For those curious, a monopole is effectively hollow, and the transmission lines run inside of it. So when a tower crew doing welding work accidentally ignited the transmission lines (which are basically 2 or 3 inch pieces of coaxial cable, and very flammable) they created a over 150 foot roman candle.
