Power Plant In Colorado Springs Still Off Limits After Monday’s Fire
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – The Colorado Springs fire chief said it would be another 24 hours before anyone other than fire crews would be allowed inside the Martin Drake Power Plant after Monday’s fire.
Insulation in the building is still smoldering.
It’s also not clear how long the coal fired plant will be offline. That has Colorado Springs Utilities buying energy, which could affect customers’ bills down the road.
