Baltimore, MD -- A fire ignited at the Brandon Shores Power Plant last night, prompting sixty firefighters to arrive at the scene.

Employees first found the fire and reported it to fire personnel at 4pm.  Eighteen pieces of equipment and sixty firefighters arrived on the scene.  It took two hours for the fire to be extinguished.

"It was really their employees that did the work.  They used a lot of their on-site resources to extinguish it," said Russ Davies, Anne Arundel County Fire Department spokesman.

The fire was contained to a pipe that fed one of the facility's boilers.  They used a carbon Dioxide extinguisher to knock out the fire.

There were no injuries.

The Brandon Shores Power Plant is a coal-fired electric generating station near Baltimore, MD.
