Internet users joke Transformers caused explosion
The shocking Hoover Dam explosion was caused when a transformer caught light.
The Bureau of Reclamation said in a Twitter statement: “At approx. 10 a.m. PDT, the A5 transformer at Hoover Dam caught fire & was extinguished by @usbr/Hoover fire brigade at approx. 10:30am PDT.”
A transformer is a piece of equipment that converts the current produced in the dam from within the generator to a higher voltage.
However, upon seeing the word transformer, many instantly thought of the film series Transformers, which began in the 1980s.
Transformers are living robotic beings from the distant planet Cybertron, and in the 2007 Transformers movie, there is a scene where the robots are at the Hoover Dam.
As you can imagine, this has sparked some hilarious jokes that the Transformers are the real cause of the Hoover Dam explosion.

There were no injuries
Thankfully, the fire at the Hoover Dam was extinguished quickly and there were no injuries or fatalities.
“There are no injuries to visitors/employees. There is no risk to the power grid. Power is still being generated from the powerhouse,” the Bureau of Reclamation said.
However, they added that despite knowing the explosion was due to a transformer which set light, they are still “investigating the cause of the fire and will provide additional updates as they are available”.
At the time of writing this, no new information has been published regarding the incident.
We are investigating the cause of the fire & will provide additional updates as they are available. 2/2— Bureau of Reclamation (@usbr) July 19, 2022
