Power Returns to Downtown Dallas After Vault Fire 12/6/13
DALLAS - Power has been restored to Dallas City Hall and the rest of a five-block downtown area after an underground electric vault fire during an ice storm.
Oncor (ON'-kor) spokeswoman Jeamy Molina (JAY'-mee moh-LEE'-nuh) says authorities are trying to determine what started Friday's apparent weather-related fire.
Utility officials say the fire happened around 4:30 a.m. CST. Flames could be seen shooting out of a sidewalk manhole as the equipment blew.
Oncor then cut power to the area so crews could work on the vault.
