The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service were called to the scene in Buchanan Street on Tuesday morning after reports of a "bang'' from a drain in the street.
An area in Buchanan Street at its junction with St Vincent Place was cordoned off.
A spokeswoman for the service said: "We received a report of a bang coming from a drain in Buchanan Street.
"We requested ScottishPower. It was some electrical cables which ScottishPower have isolated.''
Twitter users described the incident as a "mini explosion''.
Nick Kewney tweeted: "Missed a mini explosion on Buchanan Street by about 5m! Nobody seems worried so guessing it's a gas pipe.''
Police Scotland said there were reports of a power cut in the area and smoke coming from a drain.
The fire service said no fire had to be dealt with and the incident had been passed on to Scottish Power.
A ScottishPower spokesman said the incident happened shortly after 8am and all 115 properties which suffered power cuts in the area were reconnected by 9.25am.
He added: "We apologise for any inconvenience. We will now work to repair the cable fault.
"There was no evidence of any explosion. A bang was heard but the fault occurred several feet underground.''
