A possible electrical fire involving an elevator broke out this morning at the Seabrook Nuclear Power Station in New Hampshire, according to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Michael Waldron, a spokesman for NextEra Energy Resources, which owns the plant, said "smoke was detected in an equipment elevator and there was no impact on the station or any employee."
The incident, in a part of the plant that contains radioactive material or equipment dealing with radiation, ended after about 15 minutes, the NRC said.
