DELTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A fire broke out Tuesday afternoon on the roof of the Delta Energy Park, a new Lansing Board of Water and Light natural gas-fired power plant under construction in Delta Township.

BWL Communication Manager Amy Adamy said they believe a spark from construction caused the blaze.

Eight agencies assisted with the fire. No one was injured, and damage is minimal, Adamy said, adding that they don't have a cost for repairs yet.

The project will not be delayed due to the fire, and the plant still expected to be operational by the fall.

The $500 million plant will be located next to the Erickson Power Station and will generate 250 megawatts a year.
