(CNN)A fire at an electrical substation in Puerto Rico has knocked out power throughout the island, utility company LUMA Energy said Thursday.

The fire broke out in a transformer at LUMA's Monacillos substation, the company said.

At the same time, as soon as we have the results of the investigations related to the cause of this incident, whoever is responsible for it will have to answer to the People of Puerto Rico," he said.

LUMA Energy said it was the victim of an earlier Distributed Denial of Service attack, in which a site is deliberately hit by massive amounts of web traffic in an attempt to overwhelm it.

LUMA is a joint venture of Quanta Services and the Canadian energy company ATCO, which was chosen by the Puerto Rican government to take over the operation of the power grid from its previous public electric utility, PREPA.
