GILBERT, AZ - A small fire at an SRP generating plant sent three firefighters to the hospital Monday morning.
A Gilbert fire official said the three firefighters were being transported as a precaution as well as for mild eye irritation.
Scott H. of SRP said the fire started just before 8 a.m. when a hydraulic line became detached and sprayed oil on some nearby pipes. Those pipes are apparently very hot and started to smoke once they became in contact with the oil.
Firefighters got oil on their gear, as well as on their hands. They were transported to a nearby hospital to be evaluated.
Scott said there is very little damage and no one was injured. Also, no service was disrupted as a result of the fire.
No other details were released.
