Underground transformer fire leads to evacuation in Harrison
Firefighters responded to a fire today after an underground transformer caught fire in Harrison.
Officials say the transformer caught fire around 12:30 p.m. under the building at 550 Mamaroneck Ave. and forced hundreds of employees to evacuate.
Con Ed says the building was fed by three electrical lines and the fire burned out two of them. They say the fire may have been caused by the intense heat outside.
Fire officials say no one was injured in the blaze and that employees should be able to return tomorrow.
