Flash of Heat

My office is on the top floor of 641 Sixth Ave, directly above the Radio Shack. As I was working at my computer, I suddenly felt a flash of heat on my face and looked up to see nothing but a huge ball of flame outside my window -- and that's on the 7th floor. I screamed "Get the f--k outta here" and our company vacated immediately. I don't know if there were any injuries downstairs, closer to the transformer that burst into flame, but everyone on our floor got out safely.

Hope you enjoyed the show.
