NEW YORK Newark Airport has been evacuated following a fiery explosion underneath a terminal building.
New York airport EXPLOSION: Newark Airport evacuated after blast underneath terminal
Shocking images show a column of flames shooting up from a roadway at the international airport terminal amid the blast.
Sections of Newark Liberty International Airport were evacuated and closed off to the public after reports smoke filled parts of Terminal C amid the blast.
The blast was caused when an electrical transformer had caught fire underneath the airport building.
No one was injured in the blaze, which occurred around 11.00 local time (16.00 GMT). The Newark fire department had extinguished the flames within an hour.
Flames sprung up from inside a manhole operated by electric company PSE&G, based in New Jersey.
Power has been cut to the terminal and the airport is now using a back-up generator as it attempts to remain on schedule.
The fire occurred on the same day that tens of thousands of buildings were without power in New Jersey, where Newark Airport is located.
It is not clear whether the transformer fire is linked to these outages.

Terminal C has now been re-opened, but the incident has caused “chaos” inside the airport.
Airport lights went out and baggage carousels shut down in the immediate wake of the blaze, while Twitter users have reported “floods of people trying to get through security” as they re-entered the terminal after being evacuated.
Huge queues are snaking around the building as passengers struggle to make their flights amid the disruption.
Newark Airport said: “Passengers are being processed through security checkpoints but with significant delays. Baggage is being processed but with anticipated delays for inbound baggage.”
Flights are continuing to take off, but passengers are advised to check what is happening with their carrier and allow extra time in case of delays.
