Small fire ignites at power plant Wednesday

Craig Press staff report

CRAIG — Craig Fire/Rescue responded to a small fire that ignited at Craig Station power plant about 4 p.m. Oct. 11.

The flames were out by the time firefighters arrived, according to Battalion Chief Troy Hampton.

The fire occurred in the roof of one of the plant’s power generation units and ignited some duct work, Hampton said. Firefighters attended to some hot spots and cut out a small piece of the tin roof to ensure the fire was out.

Minimal damage was reported, and the source of the fire was unknown.
