However, no casualty was reported due to the blaze.

The traffic along the Janpath in the city came to a halt as passersby witnessed the inferno amid drizzle due to low pressure over the Bay of Bengal.

It is believed that short-circuit could have caused the flames. The blasts accompanied with thick black smoke billowing from the transformer put the people in a tizzy.

“No one was injured in the incident. The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained,” a police officer said.
