Evacuations and snarled-up traffic aren’t the only victims of this morning’s underground electrical fire. Seems Federal Donuts has been forced out of commission by the blaze and its aftermath. Power’s out for the entire block, and FedNuts’ team of fryer jockeys are among the many left in the dark this morning. They will remain closed until PECO throws the switch back on. The good news is, they just tweeted that they are unloading all of today’s fancy donut selections for one dollar until the lights come back on. [Federal Donuts/Twitter]
