WASHINGTON - 911 service to Sprint customers around the D.C. region has been restored after earlier problems, officials say. Problems to the wireless service included getting a busy signal when calling 911.
Sprint media relations representative Adrienne Norton told FOX 5 on Tuesday that the problems resulted from an underground transformer fire that occurred in downtown D.C. early Tuesday morning.
"9-1-1 service in #DC is fully restored," the company said in a statement on Twitter Wednesday morning. "We continue working to restore all service for our wireline customers. Thank you for your patience."
