Power restored to most buildings

Power has been restored to most buildings affected by the power outage reported earlier, except for the Beckman Center, where fire crews responded to an electrical fire believed to be associated with the outage.

The fire, in a basement room, was extinguished by the Palo Alto Fire Department. No injuries were reported; a small number of people evacuated the building. The cause of the fire and power outage has not been determined.

There is no estimated time for regular power to be restored to the Beckman Center. Updates will be posted to this page when available.
