Phoenix Flash Of Light Mystery Solved
PHOENIX - We may finally know just what the bright light -- that no one could identify -- really was.
Many of our viewers saw the flash of light live on Arizona Morning last week during one of Andrea Robinson's traffic reports. Thousands more viewed it again online.
Arizona Public Services has confirmed a breaker on an electrical line opened, causing a big flash and power outage.
The flash was caused by an electrical breaker. All day long, we made dozens of calls trying to figure out what lit up the sky.
We spoke to ADOT, a water treatment plant, Phoenix Police, local high schools, businesses in the area and finally -- Phoenix Fire Arson Investigator Steve Franklin had an answer.
Phoenix Fire says at 5:10 on Thursday morning, they got one 911 call from a woman driving up 35th Avenue and Cheryl. She says saw a big explosion and saw sparks coming off of a power line then the power went out."
