While trying to restart a coal-fired generator shut down since a January fire, another fire flared up Sunday evening at the Progress Energy Florida plant in Crystal River.
“As crews were bringing the unit online, insulation caught fire,” Cherie Jacobs, spokeswoman for the utility, said Monday.
Jacobs said the unit that caught fire was Unit 2.
“It had been offline since the Unit 1 fire in January,” Jacobs said. “When they started to bring it online, the insulation overheated and started smoldering.”
