Sweden,Crime/Disaster/Accident, Sun, 07 Oct 2012 IANS

Stockholm, Oct 7 (IANS) A huge fire at a thermal power plant in Sweden caused an explosion in a turbine, but there were no reports of any casualties.

Control room personnel called rescue services when the fire alarm rang in the electricity company in Orebro city, around 160 km west of the capital city of Stockholm, Xinhua reported citing Swedish television channel SVT.

Rescue personnel were for some time unable to get into the building due to the heat inside. Firemen activated the sprinkler system an hour after the blaze started, which helped bring the fire under control.

A large cloud of smoke was seen sweeping through the city, but police said the smoke was not poisonous.
