Over 4,000 customers are without power after witnesses say, a firework blew up a transformer in Boyle Heights Thursday night. Video shows several businesses and houses near 8th Street and Soto Avenue without power. Many were forced to stay outside to cool down or to charge their phones in their cars. It’s unclear how long LADWP crews at the scene will take to restore power.
