Investigators are working to figure out what caused a dramatic fire at a TECO substation Thursday night.
It happened at 9920 East Adamo Drive.
The fire resulted in flames shooting into the air for several hours. Around 2,000 customers were without power.
Initial reports indicated the fire was ignited by mineral oil in the substation used to cool the voltage going through the transformers.
Thursday night, officials made the decision to let the fire burn itself out, while using a protective foam to contain it.
The view from SkyFOX Friday showed the substation was still giving off smoke.
TECO will be back out at the substation over the weekend to assess the damage. They don't yet have any estimates on how much repairs will cost.
