  • Wayne, NJ Gas Line ignited

    Transformer explosion forces evacuation of assisted living
    facility

    (Wayne-AP) -- A fire in a gas main forces evacuations and closes
    a bridge in Wayne.
    It started with a transformer explosion at about nine p-m at the
    intersection of Hamburg Turnpike and Valley Road. The explosion
    brought down a power line that ignited a gas main.
    The fire spread to a brush area, forcing evacuations of 75
    residents of an assisted-living facility. About 30 residents of the
    Wayne Valley Apartments and the residents of more than a dozen
    homes nearby also were evacuated.
    There was extensive damage to a bridge on Hamburg Turnpike over
    the Singac Brook. A spokesman for the Wayne Office of Emergency
    Management said the bridge would be closed this morning while
    engineers asses the damage.
