Thousands left without electricity after fire at Dublin sub-station
AROUND 2,500 people around Dublin’s north inner city were left without electricity on Tuesday night following a fire in an electrical sub-station.
A fault was identified at around 10pm at the Summerhill exchange, in the Summerhill area of the city centre.
Dublin Fire Brigade were called to the scene and extinguished the blaze. There were no injuries in the incident, but its cause was unclear.
An ESB spokesperson said most of those customers affected would have their electricity returned swiftly.
“There are a small number of people who may be without electricity until the morning,” she said.
ESB crews were tonight working on returning the station to working order.
