A Duke Energy transformer exploded above Spring Garden Street at Mendenhall on Monday evening. By 9 p.m., the fire department had arrived, and a police officer was beginning to block traffic on Spring Garden. For whatever reason, the power remained on throughout the neighborhood (as of 9 p.m., at least). The tree on fire, the rain, the red and blue lights and at least three loud bangs from the transformer made for a pretty gaudy scene.
