Everything appeared normal Wednesday night at Tri-State Generation & Transmission’s Craig Station, but the exterior walls obscured between 15 to 20 firefighters from Craig Fire/Rescue who responded to a blaze within an air duct in Unit 2. The fire is under investigation.

No one was injured Wednesday during a fire that shut down Unit 2 at Tri-State Generation & Transmission’s Craig Station. Craig Fire/Rescue Battalion Chief Dennis Jones said 15 to 20 firefighters responded to the fire, which took place within a large air duct. By the time firefighters were assembled and ready, however, the fire had been suffocated, Jones said. “The fire was out by the time we made all of our arrangements to make sure we were safe,” he said. “We basically investigated.”
