Three houses were damaged by an electrical fire in Georgetown Wednesday afternoon.

When fire crews arrived in the 1700 block of 34th Street NW at about 2 p.m., they found an electrical meter on fire, and manholes began to smoke and become loose.

Pepco crews went into the manholes to cut the wires and work on the problem.

A private contractor was to blame, according to Pepco.
