Viewer captures video of transformer explosion in Edgerton

EDGERTON (WKOW) — All north and southbound lanes on US 51 at Jacobus Road near Edgerton have now reopened after they were briefly closed due to road debris, according to a WisDOT notification.

Rock County Sheriff’s Office said a tree took down a power line, which landed on the road.

A 27 News viewer captured video of a transformer exploding into flames in Edgerton before power went out in town.

“The next thing I know, everything just went blue,” Tesh Jones said. “It looked like a welding arc. Everything just got super bright, but I was able to capture it on video.”

No injuries were reported.
