Fire breaks out at power station in Nagarjuna Sagar; no casualties reported

Nalgonda: A massive fire broke out at a hydroelectric power station at Nagarjuna Sagar reservoir in Nalgonda district on the early hours of Monday.

No casualties were reported as the staff escaped upon seeing the fire. The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained. Fire tenders rushed to the spot and brought the flames under control.
