India, Assam: Three power transformers were entirely damaged after an incident in the Assam Power Distribution Company Limited (APDCL) control room in Sivasagar town.
According to the report, a blast in the main power control panel board caused fire in the control room and office room, which then spread to the surrounding areas completely damaging three power transformers, reports The Sentinel.
Due to the incident, many areas of the town were plunged into darkness as APDCL was unable to arrange for an alternative transformer on the same day.
APDCL technicians are now trying to repair the damaged transformers, sources revealed.
