Transformer Blows on Atlantic

An underground transformer blew at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Clinton Street shortly before noon today, shooting flames into the air. Numerous emergency response vehicles responded, including fire, ambulances and Con Ed vans. Atlantic between Court and Clinton was closed, snarling traffic attempting to get to the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. An emergency worker at the scene said that no one was hurt. A new transformer was delivered about 3 p.m.
