LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A transformer explosion outside the Salvation Army's M.A.L.E. Campus temporarily knocked heat and the ability to prepare meals for the homeless Saturday.

By Saturday evening, the heat was restored to the building and power was restored to the kitchen. The center will be open as usual Sunday morning. 

There are an average of 400 people who show up for meals each day at the Salvation Army.

During the outage, transitional single parent housing residents were allowed to stay and given extra blankets. Wayside Christian Mission offered help by taking in those seeking shelter using extra mattresses provided by the Salvation Army.

U of L students delivered donated blankets to the shelter Saturday while hosting a blanket fort contest.
