A Con Edison worker was burned in the face while responding to a reported outage at a commercial building in Maspeth Monday night, said the utility company.

The employee, who was testing equipment at 55-30 46th Street, near the corner of 55th Avenue, was injured in what a Con Ed spokesperson called an “electrical flash.”

Around 9:30 p.m. the worker was transported to New York Hospital Queens with serious but non-life injuries, said the FDNY.
