Transformer explosion forces evacuation of assisted living
(Wayne-AP) -- A fire in a gas main forces evacuations and closes
a bridge in Wayne.
It started with a transformer explosion at about nine p-m at the
intersection of Hamburg Turnpike and Valley Road. The explosion
brought down a power line that ignited a gas main.
The fire spread to a brush area, forcing evacuations of 75
residents of an assisted-living facility. About 30 residents of the
Wayne Valley Apartments and the residents of more than a dozen
homes nearby also were evacuated.
There was extensive damage to a bridge on Hamburg Turnpike over
the Singac Brook. A spokesman for the Wayne Office of Emergency
Management said the bridge would be closed this morning while
engineers asses the damage.
