Last Night Our Downtown Was on Fire

Daddy wasn't too far from this:

I'd give credit to the photo, but I don't know who took it. It's floating around on FB.

There was an electrical fire under our manholes. It almost sounds untrue. Even Daddy didn't believe me when I told him. All the power went out downtown. There was plenty of fog, which added to the creepiness. Over 2,000 people were without power. This morning only 100s were without power. They had to repair a major circuit, but were cautious because they didn't know what if it was safe for their workers under ground. 

Experts think the fire started because it's been so dry. We've had moister lately. They thought that moister got into the cable or tape. 

Could you imagine driving down the street and witnessing manholes popping up with a blast of fire?

Oh how scary! I hope no one was hurt.

No, I can't even imagine. I'm glad to hear power is restored for the most part, and I hope they find a way to keep it from happening again, that's scary stuff.
