The video above is from BuffNetwork.com of a fire yesterday at 140 East 56th Street in Manhattan. Below is aftermath video from Lehigh Valley’s Bravest (apparently running as a mutual aid videographer).
A minivan caught fire after a transformer exploded under a Midtown street Saturday, officials and witnesses said.
The blaze spread to the outside of the E. 56th St. building near Lexington Ave. catching a scaffold on fire about 12 p.m., officials and witnesses said.
Witnesses said they cleared the block after they heard several explosions.
