Detroit Edison Company’s 1,571.7-megawatt Saint Clair Power Station in East China, Michigan, has experienced an unplanned outage after a fire erupted at one of the coal-fired units and spread through the facility.


The blaze was first reported Thursday evening and was extinguished after 15 hours. No timeline has been established regarding the resumption of operations, and the station is likely to remain down for at least a week.


No injuries were reported. The company said the outage would not impact customer service. IIR will continue to assess the situation.
