Reuters has obtained an image of the reported substation fire in Dzhankoi in Crimea.

We reported earlier that Ukrainian broadcaster NEXTA-TV published unconfirmed footage of the blast. Russian media outlet RIA Novosti also reported that a transformer substation caught fire in the city at about 6am on Tuesday.
