Transformer Explosion Sparked A Fire At The Lehigh Valley Natural Gas Power Plant

Sep 12, 2016

A transformer exploded just after 8 p.m. at Talen Energy's Lower Mount Bethel power plant along Depues Ferry Road in Lower Mount Bethel Township, Northampton County emergency dispatchers tell NBC10.

Firefighters were forced to stay back from the fire because of electrocution concerns when they first arrived on scene. They were spraying fire-retardant foam on the blaze from afar, officials said.

The fire was contained to the transformer on the plant's grounds and was brought under control after over two hours.There were no reports of injuries and residents were not evacuated.Todd Martin, a spokesman for Talen Energy, said the plant was completely shut down and would remain closed for the foreseeable future. Martin said there was no danger to the public or employees.

The plant's shut down did not result in power outages, and no injuries were reported.
