During some testing a few minutes ago, one of our gas turbines at the Pasadena Power Plant caught fire. A fire suppression system came on automatically and put out the fire, but there is a smell of burnt oil in the vicinity. The Pasadena Fire Department responded as well.
There has been no interruption in delivery of electrical service in Pasadena.
