Fire At Ferrybridge Power Plant

Flames and smoke poured from the side of a major power station where a fire broke out.

The emergency services were alerted just before 2pm to the incident at the coal-fired Ferrybridge C Power Station.

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said 15 crews were tackling the blaze at the landmark power station beside the M62 and A1.

The fire had no impact on electricity supply as the plant was on summer shut down, a National Grid spokeswoman said.

'They were not generating onto the grid so it is not going to affect our operations at all,'' she said.

 The fire service said a structural engineer had been ``notified'' about the incident.
