Power restored in downtown Dayton
Dayton Daily News
DAYTON | Power was restored early Saturday to three downtown buildings whose electricity was disrupted by underground explosions Friday afternoon, a spokesman for Dayton Power & Light said Saturday. A fire in an electrical vault under Second Street caused the explosions that sent two manhole covers flying and shot flames about 15 feet high through the openings. The fire knocked out power to the Kettering Tower, the Relizon Building and the Arcade. Kevin Crawford, director of DP&L service operations, said power was restored by about 4 a.m. Saturday. Crawford said repair crews "did a fantastic job" repairing damage. Crawford and Dayton Fire Department officials said Saturday that investigations were continuing.
