LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - A fire in an underground electrical vault blew off a manhole cover and has left thousands of people without power in downtown Long Beach.

The fire was reported shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday and it was quickly doused.

No injuries are reported.

Robert Villegas of Southern California Edison says nearly 4,000 customers were without power and there’s no word when electricity will be restored.

The Aquarium of the Pacific, which is in the area, closed for the day because of the power outage.
