Transformer fire led to Sound Avenue closure in Jamesport

A transformer fire on Sound Avenue in Jamesport forced the road to be closed shortly before 2:30 p.m. between Manor Lane and Church Lane.

The Jamesport Fire Department was on scene of the fire, which was just west of Manor Lane.

It’s unclear what caused the fire. PSEG Long Island was reporting 176 customers were without power in that area and an estimated restoration time of 5:45 p.m.

Traffic began to open in one lane shortly 4:30 p.m.
