HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Fire fighters responded to a smoking HECO transformer over night. It shut down power at an apartment building and filled rooms with smoke on Kanunu Street near Ala Moana.

Police say HECO crews had apparently been working on the transformer all day, and when they tried to start it up, it began to smoke.
