Just after 7:30 a.m. today, an electrical incident occurred at Mayfair Place, an apartment and office tower located at 6707 Elbow Drive S.W. ENMAX Power Services (ENMAX) crews were on site to energize two new transformers for the building.
Immediately recognizing there was an issue, ENMAX crews promptly shut down power to the transformers. On arrival at the scene, the Calgary Fire Department proceeded to evacuate the building.
After consulting with the Fire Department, ENMAX re-energized electrical service to the building at approximately 11:45 a.m. at which time Mayfair Place electrical contractors began proceedings to stagger restoration of electricity within the building.
The incident is currently under investigation and no determination as to the cause has been found at this time.
