PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Public Service Co. says generators are providing temporary power to the final building included in an outage caused by a deadly electrical fire.

The utility says the Wells Fargo officer tower on Friday morning began operating on temporary power provided by two generators and while APS makes permanent repairs to equipment damaged by the Sunday night fire.

Power was restored previously to three other buildings as APS said its crews "worked around-the-clock to restore power safely."

One APS worker was killed and another injured in the fire in an underground electrical vault as they performed maintenance work.

The fire's cause is under investigation.
