COLWICH, Kan. (AP) _ Westar Energy officials say one of the utility's plants near Colwich will be closed for at least two months for repairs from a fire.
Westar officials say customers should not notice any impact from the closure.
A transformer at the plant failed last Wednesday, causing an explosion and fire. Westar officials estimate it will cost between $5 million and $8 million to repair the plant.
KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/11MqNQk ) the plant has a spare transformer that will be used until repairs are complete. Westar uses the plant mostly during peak summer months.
No one was injured in the fire. Workers are still trying to determine what caused the transformer to fail.
