An American Forces Network transmitter that had been off the air since Tuesday resumed broadcasting Friday.

The transmitter, which broadcasts the network’s 873 AM signal, was brought back online at 2:30 p.m. It was knocked off the air by a fire that started during routine maintenance.

Full power has not been restored. A fire in a commercial power panel caused the outage.

Three people were injured in the accident. All were briefly hospitalized for observation and released, according to an AFN statement.
