An underground fire caused a bit of an early scare this morning for residents of a southside neighborhood.

About 6 p.m., Corpus Christi Fire Department crews were called to the 5000 block of Meandering Lane for what appeared to be a fence fire.

The fire was caused by an underground cable.

It set one fence on fire and burned two cable boxes that were situated against two townhomes.

An AEP crew was called to turn off the electricity. And after that the fire was quickly put out.

Fire damage was minor.
