Firefighters extinguished a transformer fire that broke out Tuesday morning at a shipping container facility in Wilmington, authorities said.

Flames are seen as a transformer fire burns at the TraPac facility in Wilmington on Tuesday morning. Firefighters extinguished the blaze shortly afterward.

The blaze was reported about 7:34 a.m. at the TraPac Inc. location in the 900 block of West Harry Bridges Boulevard, about a half-mile north of the Vincent Thomas Bridge.

Los Angeles Fire Department personnel were working with the Department of Water and Power, waiting for confirmation that power to the transformer had been shut down before attacking the fire.

“There are no structures threatened at this time,” said Katherine Main, spokeswoman for the LAFD. “There are no injuries reported at this time.”
