Holyoke fire officials tell CBS 3 that the transformer is at the intersection of Whiting Farms Road and Lower Westfield Road.
Traffic is being re-directed away from that area while repairs are underway. Live wires were reported on the road.
Our CBS 3 crew on scene says the issue is impacting traffic on the Holyoke Mall exit.
As of 10 p.m. a Massachusetts State Police cruiser was blocking off of a portion of Exit 15 thus preventing traffic from turning towards the Holyoke Mall.
CBS 3 will have more information as it becomes available.
