  1. I wonder why there were so many fire fighters at the scene? I guess they were just letting it burn itself out. I suppose you could put some chemicals on the fire to suppress it but maybe it would be less of a mess if they just let it burn out.

  2. There was a ton more of them, too! I asked one of them what was going on and what they could do about it. He said they “don’t go underground.” Although plenty of times they do, so there must be more of an explanation to that. Maybe they just don’t do transformer fires and wait for ConEd (our power company)? But he said they were waiting to make sure the fire didn’t travel to the buildings around it, which they would address.
