A transformer fire in Toronto’s downtown core has led to a significant power outage affecting thousands of Toronto Hydro customers. According to reports from Toronto Fire officials, the fire originated at a transformer pole near the intersection of George Street and King Street East, triggering a widespread loss of power in the vicinity.

Toronto Hydro has approximated that approximately 6,500 customers are presently experiencing power disruptions due to the incident. Restoration efforts are underway with Toronto Hydro’s crews actively engaged in repairing the damaged infrastructure to reinstate power supply in the affected areas.

Responding to the situation, Toronto Hydro stated, «Crews are on site working diligently and adhering to safety protocols to swiftly restore power to all impacted customers.» The utility company reassured the public that updates will be promptly provided as more details emerge regarding the progress of the restoration efforts.

As per initial assessments, the suspected cause of the power outage has been attributed to «animal contact», as communicated by Toronto Hydro to local news sources.
