This is a "non-passive failure" of a transformer under the corner of Bleecker St and Leroy St in New York City's West Village, about 10:20 pm on Saturday, January 1, 2011. Emergency crews (Police and Fire) showed up a few minutes later, and they blocked off the streets.

Edit: It isn't 2010 anymore, is it...

Edit 2: The flames were bigger before I could start recording, I was getting to a safer distance. I left when the smoke started getting close to me and called 911 from down the street without the fumes.

Edit 3: Spelling and phrasing.
