Last night a Wells Fargo server caught on fire in Shoreview, Minnesota, requiring technicians to shut down the server, according to a bank employee.
The local server outage caused a ripple effect in the bank’s systems across the nation, affecting ATMs, Credit Cards, and online services.
Wells Fargo sent out a tweet at about noon on Thursday saying they’re ‘working to restore services as soon as possible’;
We’re experiencing system issues due to a power shutdown at one of our facilities, initiated after smoke was detected following routine maintenance. We’re working to restore services as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Another local business owner wasn’t able to get their payroll transferred;
If you’re a business owner trying to get payroll transferred for tomorrow so your staff can get paid it’s also frustrating! Killing me.
