Telephone Pole Down In Manhattan Beach

Courtesy of local broker

Reader local broker spotted this scene going down by West End Avenue and Oriental Boulevard in Manhattan Beach. We’re not quite sure what caused the light/telephone/electrical pole to fall, or if it damaged any property, but everything looks like it’s in capable hands now. The pole appears to have been sawed in half (with the top half lying at the fireman’s feet) to reduce the stress until they rip it out of the ground. Anyone with information on how this happened?
