An underground cabled failure left seventy-four PECO customers without power in the Bryn Mawr area Saturday night, PECO spokesperson, Mike Wood, confirmed.

Workers were originally sent to the area around 7:30 a.m. due to an underground outage that affected about 400 customers.

As PECO workers were connecting a generator to restore power an underground failure occurred in an adjoining circuit, which caused a lot of smoke. PECO called this a "pop" not an explosion because there were no flames.

Luckily, no one was injured.
