Solar panel fire at Peterborough hydro-electric power building
Firefighters responded to the building around 11:20 a.m. said Paul Thibault, Peterborough’s assistant fire chief.
Jaffrey and Dublin firefighters assisted, but other companies heading to the scene were told to turn back after the fire was put out quickly, Thibault said.
The fire caused minor structural damage to the building and is not under investigation, Thibault said.
Thibault said the hydro-electric plant does not power any local homes. The power plant was temporarily shut off during the fire response.
