Transformer Fire At Nuclear Plant

Updated:
DELTA, Pa. (AP) _ A transformer at a nuclear plant caught fire Tuesday morning, but the smoky blaze was confined to the non-nuclear side of the plant, company officials said.

The fire, reported at 9:40 a.m., did not pose a threat to the public, said Craig Nesbit, a spokesman for Exelon Nuclear in Warrenville, Ill., which shares ownership of the Peach Bottom nuclear power plant with New Jersey-based PSE&G.

``The fire itself was very small,'' Nesbit said. ``It was mostly smoke.''

Power from one of the plant's generating units was reduced following the fire, but it remained online, Nesbit said. Delta is in south-central Pennsylvania.
