Updated: Mar 23, 2022

The fire erupted on a portable piece of equipment being used as a part of maintenance work at the substation in Matthews, news outlets reported. Videos showed a column of smoke rising from the substation March 18. The fire prompted Matthews police to close down a street until the fire was brought under control. Duke Energy switched over affected homes and businesses to another substation to restore power, the company said. Power was restored at around 12:30 p.m.
