Fire department reported electrical vault fire

Power has been restored in the Mission Bay neighborhood north of Chase Center arena following an outage that occurred just hours before its first scheduled event, a Metallica concert, according to PG&E.

Chase Center still had power during the outage, although the neighborhood immediately north of it was dark.

“We are on a different circuit than where is affected,” said Lisa Goodwin, a Warriors and Chase Center spokesperson.

The arena’s traffic woes could have been exacerbated by the power outage, had it continued throughout the day.

About a dozen traffic lights at nearby intersections were out, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, prompting The City to issue a warning to “treat impacted intersections” as four-way stop signs.

Supervisor Matt Haney, who represents the neighborhood where Chase Center is located, among others, said the outage was possibly caused by a “manhole explosion.” The San Francisco Fire Department reported responding to a vault fire in the area of Third Street and Mission Bay South, with no reported damage or injuries.

PG&E said the outage, reported at 1:30 p.m., affected around 2,900 customers as of around 2:30 p.m.. A map showed it stretched down Third Street from the Lefty O’Doul Bridge (just under Oracle Park) all the way to 16th Street, just narrowly missing the University of California San Francisco Medical Center at Mission Bay, and Chase Center itself.

Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
