Fire crews have responded to a report of an explosion and smoke coming from Seattle City Light’s big substation at 23rd and Pine.
A police officer who was nearby heard the explosion and saw the smoke driving southbound toward Union.
We experienced a brief power surge at CDNews World HQ, but thankfully so far all of our fans are still going.
City Light sent out a press release earlier today warning that high temperatures can stress the electrical system, bringing the possibilities of outages.
