NEW HAVEN, W.Va. (AP) -- Appalachian Power says a fire at its power plant in Mason County won't affect the facility's operations.

Appalachian Power spokeswoman Jeri Matheney says the fire occurred in an unused area of the Mountaineer Plant that's being demolished.

Matheney says a 75-foot tall fiberglass tank caught fire as a demolition crew was working around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. No one was injured.

She says the tank was empty. An investigation is under way to determine why the tank ignited.
