[UPDATE BELOW] Three people were injured in a fire at the Intrepid Museum this morning. According to an FDNY spokesman, two people doing electrical work sustained burns to their arms shortly before 11:30 a.m. and were transported to Weill Cornell Medical Center. A third injured person is currently being evaluated. The spokesperson added that it looks to be a "transformer incident," but the exact cause of the fire has not yet been officially confirmed.

Earlier today the museum announced via its website that it would delay today's opening time to 12 p.m., "due to a power outage." CBS 2 reports that the "electrical explosion" happened on the pier next to the Intrepid.

A spokesman for the Intrepid museum did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A ConEd spokesman said the incident did not involve ConEd equipment or employees. We'll update as more information becomes available.

Update 12:44 p.m.: Intrepid spokesman Luke Sacks issued this statement: "While doing repairs to an outside power supply at the end of the pier, two employees, and one volunteer who was nearby, received minor injuries today. One of the employees and the volunteer are being taken to the hospital for evaluation as a precaution.

"The museum was already closed due to the power outage that the employees were working to fix. It will remain closed for the rest of the day."
