This afternoon when commissioning an electrical system on the non-nuclear side of Unit 1, staff closely monitoring the testing identified smoke coming from a piece of electrical equipment.

Immediate action was taken by Bruce Power response staff to extinguish a small electrical fire. The response staff were on standby to respond to any such events as per plant safety procedures. No staff were injured.

Bruce Power has staff on standby at all of its facilities around the clock that monitor all systems to quickly respond to any situations, no matter how small. Staff responded to this situation in a swift, professional manner.
