Fire cuts power to large swath of Boston

• By Jim Axelrod
 Crews were working to restore power in the city's downtown Wednesday morning after an electrical transformer fire Tuesday night left more than 20,000 customers without electricity, disrupted travel, and forced evacuations.

The fire was first reported about 6:30 in the evening. It started in a 115,000 volt transformer behind the Hilton Hotel in an area called Back Bay.

Thick, black smoke hovered over downtown after the fire broke out and left much of the city in the dark.
