      A blown transformer in downtown D.C. Thursday night cracked windows in a nearby office building, police say.

      Authorities say that an underground transformer exploded in the 1100 block of G Street near Metro Center overnight.

      Both directions of G Street were closed for a period of time while Pepco crews made repairs.

      No one was injured in the explosion.
