JACKSONVILLE, Fl. - Four JEA crews worked through the night into Thursday morning to restore power to companies downtown and in the Riverside area following an underground transformer fire.
The Jacksonville Fire & Rescue Department responded to the fire in the Riverside area Wednesday morning around 10AM.
About 100 businesses were without power along Riverside Avenue. JEA cut six electrical circuits so firefighters could manage the blaze, according to JEA.
JEA spokesperson Gerri Boyce told Jacksonville's Morning News at 5:50am Thursday that all street lights were working again.
Later at 2:41 p.m., Boyce told WOKV that service had been restored to the Everbank building and Fidelity. Service to the LPS building should be restored by the early evening.
All other customers are in service.
Boyce says once all power is restored, they will focus on their investigation into the cause of the fire.
