[Update: Seattle Firefighter officials are going to let the fire burn itself out. The substation still has 26,000 volts running through it, according to the Seattle Times. Power has been restored to all customers.]
Firefighters are working to put out a large fire at Seattle City Light’s Broad Street substation (319 Sixth Ave. N.) near Seattle Center, which started at 10 a.m. this morning (July 23).
At 10:45 a.m., firefighters were pumping foam onto the flames, according to The Seattle Times.
“[The] fire happened in a capacitor bank, which regulates the quality of power flow,” City Light tweeted.
The substation fire has caused power outages for customers in the Seattle Center area, including the Space Needle, EMP, Key Arena and Seattle Center, City Light officials said. About 325 people are without power.
The monorail is closed.
No injuries have been reported.
