Transformer Fire Sparks Power Outages in Shenandoah Valley
A temporary fix is in place to bring power back to thousands of people in Augusta County.
Dominion Virginia Power says many were in the dark for several hours Sunday because of a transformer fire. The fire started about 1:30 Sunday afternoon, causing a transformer to fail. This happened along Churchville Avenue in Augusta County.
As a result of the fire, Dominion had to turn off several power lines in the area. A spokesperson says they reworked circuits to get the power back. They'll work on a permanent fix Monday.
