There were 598 other emergency runs throughout the day, including at least 2 other fires, several auto accidents and a few shootings.
When AEP shut down the power and blacked out most of the South End, Miranova was also without electricity, forcing the residents to endure with air conditioning and listen the shrieks of children at the Scioto Mile.
