Monday, September 28, 2009

PARIS, Sept 25 (Reuters) - EDF has turned off the 1,300-megawatt Paluel power reactor 3 after fire broke out in the machine room in the non-nuclear part of the plant, it said on Friday.

The fire was put out and there were no casualties, it said.

"This had no impact on the plant's safety," an EDF spokeswoman said, but could not say when the reactor would restart.
