FREMONT -- A transformer fire Tuesday morning knocked out power to several intersections, along with power to two polling places along the route of the outage, police said.
The fire was reported about 7 a.m. on the 40400 block of Eaton Court, police said. PG&E, Fremont Fire and Fremont Police all responded to the scene, along with personnel to assist in traffic control.
Two polling places, In Roads Church, located at 3111 Washington Blvd., and Crossroads Church at 41386 Fremont Blvd., Building E, were without power following the fire, according to Dave Macdonald, Alameda County Registrar of Voters.
Macdonald said the impact would be "minimal" for voters.
"When people come in to vote, we have a paper roster with all of the voters' names," Macdonald said. People will continue to vote as if the power was on."
Both polling places remained open during the duration of the outage.
Intersections that remain without power include Stevenson Boulevard and Davis Street, Grimmer Boulevard and Fremont Boulevard, Washington Boulevard and Luzon Drive, Washington Boulevard and Paseo Padre Parkway, Fremont Boulevard and Blacow Road, Fremont Boulevard and Sundale Drive and Five Corners; at Fremont Boulevard, Washington Boulevard and Bay Street.
