VALLEJO, Calif. —
Vallejo firefighters quickly extinguished a fire in a transformer in an underground electrical vault Thursday morning, a fire department spokesman said.
The fire was reported at 8 a.m. at Willow Street and Almond Avenue. It knocked out power to homes in a five-block area, fire department spokesman Mark Libby said.
PG&E spokeswoman Brittany McKannay said 800 customers were affected but that all but 13 had their power restored as of noon.
The cause of the fire will be investigated after a new transformer is installed, McKannay said.
