Fire Damages Narayanganj Power Plant

An explosion caused a fire that damaged the three story Narayanganj power plant last night.  The fire event led to a halt of power supply to the national grid.

A mechanical failure in the steam turbine caused the explosion.

Three fire engines doused the flames for two and a half hours before the fire was contained.  Once the fire was extinguished, firefighters continued to douse the plant to keep it cool and prevent another flare up.
