TORRINGTON, CT (WFSB) -

A transformer issue caused an underground explosion early Wednesday morning in Torrington.

Eversource restored power at the corner of Main Street and Maiden Lane, which is not too far from the Warner Theater.

Torrington police said the explosion went off just before 3:15 a.m. and the road was reopened about an hour later.

It is unclear exactly what caused the blast.
