Luminant officials say a transformer blew at the company's Oak Grove power plant in Robertson County Thursday.

All personnel are accounted for and no injuries are reported.

Luminant says their crews on site called 911, bringing Robertson County and Bremond first responders to the scene.

An initial report from Robertson County said there was a fire at the plant.

However, Luminant says there was no fire.

A cause of the transformer issue is under investigation, according to Luminant.

Officials say there was an electrical issue with a turbine that caused a fire Thursday evening, but the fire was isolated to a small portion of the plant, according to authorities.

Emergency crews were released as of shortly before 7 p.m.
