Firefighters Extinguish Blaze at Microsoft Campus

Curious story about Microsoft today.

Firefighters have extinguished an electrical transformer fire in a parking gararge on the Microsoft campus.

Microsoft said that there was a transformer fire with lots of smoke and that employees put it out before the fire department arrived. Apparently the building was evacuated and the power was turned off.

Jim Bove, a spokesman for the Redmond Fire Department, said the fire broke out at around 11 a.m. in building 92, located at 15010 NE 36th St.

“Everything is as back to normal as it gets over there,” he said at about 12:30 p.m.

No injuries were reported. Fire officials are still investigating what caused the Microsoft-owned transformer to ignite, Bove said.

Hope everybody’s ok.
