Presque Isle Power Plant Fire

The Marquette City Fire Cepartment was dispatched to fire at the Presque Isle Power Plant just after 7:30 tonight.

Fire Chief Tom Belt said the fire started inside a coal bunker. Officials say the fire started because the bunker was either too compacted or the coal was wet. Fire Fighters doused the coals with water as the energy company slowly emptied out the bunker. No one was injured in the fire.
