A transformer incident was reported in the alley behind The Emporia Gazette this morning.

Gazette Graphic Designer Katie Potter arrived at work at 6:30 and smelled fire as she approached the rear of the building.

“I didn’t really think too much of it,” Potter said. “But then I saw that the transformer had blown and the wood decking underneath it was glowing.”

She then called 911 and firefighters arrived promptly.
