Immediate action was taken, and repair teams were promptly dispatched to assess the situation.

Repair work is currently 90 percent complete, with full restoration of power expected later this afternoon. The cause of the fire is still being investigated.

The dedicated repair teams have been working tirelessly to ensure the complete restoration of electricity supply for all affected customers.
