Energy Fiji Limited is currently working on restoring the power supply in Labasa.

This follows a fire that broke out last night on one of its larger thermal generating sets at the Cawaira Power Station.

In a statement, Chief Executive Officer Hasmukh Patel says that with the sprinkler system being operational and the National Fire Authority being there on time, the fire was brought under control from spreading.

EFL apologizes for any inconvenience that may be caused as a result of this unplanned power outage exercise and seeks the cooperation and understanding of all affected customers.
