TUCSON, Ariz. -- A transformer blew at Saturday's gem show.  The transformer was near the exhibit tents at 22nd Street and Interstate 10.

Photos, taken by Fox 11 employee Karen Hill, show the transformer smoking after it made a loud bang sound.

Power was knocked out in the area for a while this afternoon while TEP employees made repairs.
