Huge transformer fire cuts off electricity in Riyadh

Saudi Arabia, Riyadh: A huge transformer fire broke out at a power plant in Riyadh sending 10-metre flames into the air. 

The fire broke out inside a transformer at the plant in the city’s Al-Nafil district, reports Arab News.

The Saudi Electricity Company said no one had been hurt.

“Due to the need to extinguish the fire and to maintain safety, the station has been isolated and there has been a temporary partial shutdown in some neighbouring areas until the fire has been extinguished, after which we will begin to gradually restore,” Arab News cites the company.
