Fire Department Called to High School Substation After Explosions Are Heard

Nobody was reported injured when explosions were heard from the electric substation near Danvers High School on Tuesday afternoon.

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.

The lights in my house were turning black and then coming back to normal, I thought I was seeing things. It happened 3 times. It was at 2pm so that explains it.

My lights were flickering as well, I couldn't figure out why it was happening. But now it makes sense. Happy to hear no one was hurt.
