Fire Breaks Out in Rangoon Power Plant

5 April 2013

A fire broke out at a Rangoon power plant on Thursday night while media was blocked from entering the scene, The New Light of Myanmar reported on Friday. A policeman from the investigation team told the state-run newspaper it was “an electrical fire.”  The blaze would be the second “electrical fire” reported in Rangoon this week. An earlier blaze that killed 13 young Muslim boys was put down to an electrical fault by the authorities, although local residents rejected the Burmese government’s claims.
