A nuclear power reactor 40 miles (65 km) north of New York City was shut down Saturday after a transformer fire, but officials said the Indian Point plant was stable and there is no threat to residents nearby.

People in the area reported an explosion and smoke coming from the plant at Buchanan in New York state. But the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said the fire was quickly extinguished.
