I was working at the plant the very minute the alarm sounded, I was thinking this is another drill but it was the real thing!. I am a union insulator hired to make and apply the new temp-mat pads to insulate the turbines,
there I was under that unit working away and the strangest feeling came over me that caused me to act, I actually felt somthing was'nt right,
so I grabbed my helper and said "lets go see what the other guys are doing". We left the area when an SRP worker said "get out theres a fire!!" turns out It was right above us on the 3rd tier and burnin fast!

to make this event more interesting, the turbines, wich are powered by natural gas, were to be turned on today and if that were the case, had they been in operation...lets just say that I am very happy to be posting this firsthand account with you today!.
