The Danvers Fire Department was called to the electric substation next to Danvers High School after explosions were heard coming from it.
No injuries were reported.
The call came in at about 2 p.m. and the Fire Department was returned to the station just a few minutes later. Danvers Electric light was also notified and headed there.
It was not immediately clear what caused the explosion and a small fire was also reported near the substation, which is on the west side of the high school parking lot opposite the building.
As the Fire Department and a few police officers were on scene, school dismissal and pickup continued as normal just after 2 p.m. A small portion of the parking lot, at the southwest corner, was blocked off but the incident did not otherwise disrupt activities.
