“Dear PoPville,

Pepco transformers exploded Sunday on 3rd St. NW, between Q and R streets on the east side of the Shaw neighborhood. At approximately 1:10 p.m., residents lost power. Second later an explosion could be heard and smoke rising from the ground near the underground power source. Residents scampered out of their homes to investigate and the fire department arrived within ten minutes. Neighborhood residents say Pepco had done some work in the area the previous day.”
