Power cut affects whole of Gibraltar due to substation blaze
22 April 2014 @ 13:41

A FIRE in a Gibraltar substation left the whole of the Rock without power all day Saturday and part of Sunday.

According to the Royal Gibraltar Police (RGP), the massive inferno broke out in the generator in Waterport in the North Mole district and caused a huge column of smoke which could be seen throughout the Rock and parts of the province of Cádiz.

Nobody was hurt nor had to be evacuated, but the RGP ordered residents in the area to shut their windows to prevent smoke getting in.
