Fire Hits Third South Power Station in Week

 Yemen Post Staff

A fire broke out on Thursday at the power plant in Al-Hiswa district in Yemen's business capital of Aden, the third blaze engulfing power stations in the south this week, causing an outage that left a large part of the city suffering amid a severe heatwave.

The government said a voltage surge at the main power generation facility led to an explosion blamed for the blaze that was brought under control.

Early this week, two fires broke out at Al-Rayan power station in Hadramout and Dhale power station and the government blamed the secessionist movement responsible for violence and rioting in most of the southern areas.

Today's fire, according to conflicting statements, might have been caused by a technical defect in one of the switches of the circuit connecting Al-Hiswa and Al-Mansoura plants or due to the explosion of a high tensile cable.
