A transformer station fire on Sunday evening caused a power outage complicating operations at the Prague metro. The Palmovka and Náměstí Míru stations experienced service delays of up to half an hour between 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
The cause of the power failure was a fire at the insulator in the Teplárenská street transformer station. After disconnecting the current, firefighters extinguished the flames using foam.
