Power Fully Restored

Power has been fully restored to some 2,200 customers in east Reno after an explosion in an underground electrical vault closed a part of Kuenzli Street and blew a pickup onto its side.

Driver Tim Bair of Phoenix was preparing to turn left from Kuenzli onto Kirman when the blast lifted his Dodge Dakota about four feet.

He received a good scare and a scrape on his right knee.

Most of the people affected were back in service by midafternoon
yesterday. All were back in service as of early this morning.
