Electrical fire in downtown Ambler

There is an electrical fire that appears to be underground in downtown Ambler at the intersection of Butler Avenue and South Spring Garden Street.

The above grid is from Montgomery County’s active incidents website and it shows that first responders were notified at 7:51 p.m.

The person who sent us the photos, Tom Gerstlauer, just reported that there was a loud bang that emanated from the area of the fire.

As of 8:30 p..m. the PECO outage map does not show any outages in Ambler.

That is all we know thus far.

More to come.
