Ameren Saying Little about Fire at Callaway Nuclear Pant

FULTON, MO–(KMOX)–Three workers are hurt during a fire at the Callaway County nuclear plant — in an event Ameren is keeping a tight lid on.

Ameren is refusing to do interviews after two of the workers suffered burns to the face.  The electrical flash fire erupted just after five o’clock Tuesday night.

In a short statement Ameren says the fire happened outside of the protected area in a switch yard that distributes power from the plant. Operations of the nuclear reactor were not affected, the statement says.

No information is being released on the extent of the burns.  The cause is under investigation.
