Crews called to a transformer fire outside of Hennepin

Posted by wlpo on September 2, 2014

A transformer fire sent black smoke into the sky over Putnam County. A transformer along side the Dynegy Power Plant near Hennepin started on fire around 10:45am Tuesday.

Hennepin Fire Chief Darryl Petersen says the fire was mostly oil burning. Granville, Standard and Magnalia Fire Departments and PC EMS also responded.  They had it under control in 20 minutes. There was damage to the transformer and surrounding equipment but the building was okay.
