That explains the flickering lights.
The fire at the substation near Hillsboro started hours ago and it’s still burning. Officials say the better part of valor is to let it burn out.
People are feeling the lack of power, including Andy from Beaverton who captured this video hours after the fire started!
Andy’s not the only one who’s feeling it:
