(INDIANAPOLIS) - An underground transformer blast rocked part of downtown Indianapolis.

People on and around South Meridian Street just south of Monument Circle reported hearing several loud noises around 1:30pm. Smoke began billowing from street vents, forcing the evacuation of some buildings.

The Indianapolis Fire Department says a transformer explosion caused the noises and the smoke - the smoke had largely dissipated about half an hour later.

No one was injured during the incident.
