EPHRATA, Wash. - Multiple fires and explosions at a substation knocked out power to thousands of residents in Ephrata, Quincy and Soap Lake Wednesday night, according to the Grant County Public Utilities District.
The Grant County Sheriff said a fire broke out at the substation in downtown Ephrata about 7:00 p.m.
Videos posted to social media show huge flames from the substation shooting into the air along with flashes that lit up the sky, before the city went dark.
That looks expensive.
It reminded me of the old Pat Travers party tune. Damn did we do a lot of drinkin' and shit to this tune back in the day.
