WHEATFIELD | A fire in a turbine at NIPSCO's Schahfer Generating Station on Sunday afternoon was quickly extinguished, a company spokesman said.
The fire did not affect electric service to any NIPSCO customers and no injuries were reported, spokesman Nick Meyer said.
The fire is believed to have stemmed from a control valve on the turbine, he said. Local firefighters and NIPSCO crews responded.
The unit will remain offline while an inspection and maintenance work is completed, Meyer said.
