Electric officials cut power off to the building and they were able to extinguish the fire rapidly.

No one suffered an injury, and the building suffered minimal damaged. Workers were evacuated as a precaution.

The transformer, which is a ground unit, will have to be replaced, officials said.

The Magneti Marelli plant suffered major damage when it caught fire in Nov. 2016.

Magneti Marelli’s Pulaski plant is an automotive lighting facility for the production of headlamps and rear lights.
