Debris ignited inside an underground electrical vault in Pasadena Thursday afternoon, sending up smoke and prompting the evacuation of a restaurant.
Smoke was reported coming from the vault in front of the Corner Bakery restaurant in the 300 block of South Lake Avenue about 2:15 p.m., said Lisa Derderian of the Pasadena Fire Department.
The restaurant was evacuated as a precaution and Lake Avenue was closed to traffic between Del Mar Boulevard and San Pasqual Street for about 30 minutes, Derderian said.
