UPDATE: Power Restored to Most of Chelmsford Center Shopping Plaza
CHELMSFORD -- Power to the shopping plaza at 18 Boston Road has been restored after an electrical panel fire left the location without power since around 1 p.m. Tuesday.
Chelmsford Fire Chief Gary Ryan announced at around 6:35 p.m. power had been returned to all plaza units except Choice Fitness Gym.
