Murfreesboro Fire and Rescue was on the scene of a transformer failure with an explosion and fire. The incident occurred at around 5:00 p.m. Friday and caused numerous power outages in the area. The fire is out and Murfreesboro Electric Company was on the scene and they have restored most of the power in the area. Power to the Holiday Inn and Microtel will most likely remain out until Saturday. Guests were re-locating at this time.
Haz-Mat crews from Station 9 and Headquarters are working to clean up mineral oil, which is leaking from the damaged transformers. There were no injuries.
