Transformer blew up on Center Street in Downtown Batavia, resulting in power outage

posted by Billie Owens in batavia, news.

A transformer blew up -- or had some kind of meltdown -- on Center Street, resulting in a power outage. National Grid is notified and asked to respond in emergency mode; no ETA. The transformer was leaking oil or fluid, which reportedly got on a vehicle parked near it.

The vehicle was moved to a parking lot. Center Street was closed at East Main and School Street. City fire and police responded. The city fire assignment is back in service. Not sure if the roadway is reopened.
