Hoover Dam Explosion, Fire Caught On Video
The Boulder City Fire Department responded to an explosion at the Hoover Dam in Nevada Tuesday morning, officials confirmed.
The explosions occurred around 10:00 am after a transformer at the dam caught fire.
“Boulder City Fire Department is en route to an emergency call at Hoover Dam,” the department tweeted.
“The fire was extinguished before Boulder City Fire Department arrived on the scene,” the fire department wrote about a half hour later. “Bureau of Reclamation/ Hoover Dam will be handling any additional questions.”
Tours of the dam were briefly paused for about 30 minutes, but have since resumed.
