BROOKFIELD — A transformer caught on fire Sunday morning, closing a section of Federal Road.

Federal Road is closed for less than half a mile between the two ends of Old New Milford Road, a Brookfield police dispatcher said around 6:45 a.m. Sunday. Drivers will be detoured down Old New Milford Road.

Eversource is assessing the situation, but Eversource’s outage map does not report that anyone is without power.

The dispatcher said he did not know when the road would be reopened.
