Transformer explosion knocks out power for several hundred residents


At around 9:20 Saturday evening, there were calls of a transformer explosion along Chambers Road, just north of the airport in Big Flats.

Multiple fire crews from different departments responded to the scene.

Our photographer on scene saw a straight line of fire, a dangling wire and homes without lights on.

According to NYSEG, there are more than 500 residents without power in that area. They expect to get power restored by 1:15 Sunday morning.
