EL CAJON (CNS) - The El Cajon courthouse was expected to open as usual Wednesday after being closed unexpectedly on Tuesday due to a loss of power and phone service to the building.
Firefighters entered the jurors' area of the courthouse at 250 E. Main St. about 1:40 a.m. Tuesday and found smoke coming from an overheated electrical panel, according to El Cajon city spokeswoman Monica Zech.
No actual fire was found, just smoke, she said, adding that the electrical problem caused power and phone service interruptions.
Anyone who was scheduled to appear Tuesday on traffic cases or misdemeanor arraignments should come back to the El Cajon courthouse within seven calendar days to have their case heard, court officials said.
Those scheduled for jury duty in El Cajon on Tuesday should call the Jury Commissioner's office at (619) 450-5757 for further information.
