Small fire reported at Grand Gulf Nuclear Station

PORT GIBSON — A small fire shut down work in a portion of Entergy’s Grand Gulf Nuclear Station in Port Gibson Wednesday.

Grand Gulf spokeswoman Suzanne Anderson tells the Vicksburg Post that there was no danger to workers or the public.

Anderson says an unknown number of workers were forced to exit when a fire broke out in the condenser area of the plant about 30 miles south of Vicksburg at 6:26 p.m.

She says Grand Gulf firefighters cleared the scene by 7 p.m. Anderson says the damage was not expected to significantly delay work at the plant to increase Grand Gulf’s power.
