One of the two reactors at the Braidwood nuclear power plant is off line after a transformer problem forced Exelon to shut it down Thursday night.A spokesperson for Exelon says there is no danger to the public.

It is not known how long the reactor will be off line.

Exelon says government regulations force them to classify the incident as unusual because power was lost for more than 15 minutes.
