The incident, confirmed by JCP&L and borough police, was reported shortly after 7 AM today on the Barnegat Bay Island Facebook page as an explosion and fire.

A JCP&L spokesman describes the regulator as a “piece of external equipment” with no major bearing on electrical supplies.

No one was injured and there was no spike in typical service interruptions.
