Underground electrical fire in Ambler leads to power outage to some in downtown Ambler, plus road closure

PECO’s outage map shows 33 accounts without power in downtown Ambler. Last evening, AroundAmbler.com reported on a fire that led to smoke and flames coming from an underground access point at the corner of Butler Avenue and South Spring Garden Street. Butler Avenue is also still closed at this intersection.

The latest information from PECO shows that the power is expected to be restored by Friday, May 28th at 4:00 a.m.

We didn’t call every business in that area to see if they have power, but the closest retail business, Backyard Beans, is open with power, but Mermaid Art Studio, which is across Butler Avenue, does not have power. So call before you go.
