Fire takes hold at Lewis Center substation

Local News

A fire caught hold at an electrical substation Saturday evening, Delaware County Sheriff radio room confirmed this evening.

The fire began at about 7:04pm on Saturday night, and still occupied crews an hour later. It affects the sub station at 7547 Green Meadows Drive North.

Neighbors were able to see the flames. No injuries were reported, the sheriff’s office confirmed.

An AEP spokesperson said that the fire had been contained but it will continue to burn. However only a couple of customers — if any — are affected.

“It’s a transmission substation, so it feeds distribution lines, but we’ve transferred loads over to other lines,” the spokesperson explained.
