Fire Destroys Power Transformers, Leaves Residents in Avadi Area Without Electricity

Residents of Pattabiram, parts of Avadi’s Kamaraj Nagar, Sekkadu, and Mittanamali faced a prolonged power outage lasting over nine hours on Saturday night after a fire destroyed two power transformers at the 110 KV Pattabiram Substation. Despite severe heatwave conditions, officials worked to extinguish the fire, with the cause still under investigation. Former minister and Avadi MLA Nasar urged swift action to restore power, with TANGEDCO officials working to supply electricity through backfeeding from Kamaraj Nagar substation until new transformers are installed at Pattabiram.
