More than 100 people were left without power and heat in East Boston after a manhole fire.

Authorities say the fire on Sunday may have been caused by a broken transformer.

Putnam and Bennington Street were closed until crews were able to put out the flames.

Crews worked overnight Sunday and are still working on the issue.
