Abstract: GRB 070610, which is also named Swift J195509.6+261406, is a peculiarGalactic transient with significant variability on short timescales in bothX-ray and optical light curves. One possible explanation is that GRB070610-Swift J195509.6 + 261406 is a soft gamma-ray repeater SGR in ourGalaxy. Here we use the fireball model which is usually recognized as thestandard model of gamma-ray burst GRB afterglows, and the energy injectionhypothesis to interpret the X-ray and optical afterglow light curves of GRB070610-Swift J195509.6 + 261406. It is found that the model is generallyconsistent with observations.
