2-Alarm Fire Doused at Nevada Solar Energy Plant
News

BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) -- A city official says Boulder City and Henderson firefighters doused a two-alarm blaze in a cooling tower at a solar power generating station east of Las Vegas.

Boulder City spokeswoman Rose Ann Miele says no one was hurt in the fire a little after 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Eldorado Energy plant off U.S. 95.

Miele tells the Las Vegas Sun the fire was apparently sparked by a welder doing work at the facility.

It's located in the Eldorado Valley about 17 miles south of downtown Boulder City.
