According to a report in El Nuevo Dia,

On Wednesday early afternoon, two 230,000-volt transmission lines went down after a fire broke out at Central Aguirre, one of PREPA’s key units. Even though several teams of the Puerto Rico Fire Corps were able to extinguish the fire in a short period of time, efforts to restore the electricity service were unsuccessful.
