WENATCHEE, Wash. —

An electrical fire Saturday shut down one of four powerhouses at the Grand Coulee Dam.

A Bureau of Reclamation spokeswoman, Lynne Brougher, told The Wenatchee World ( http://bit.ly/15OkWvV) the fire occurred on a power line that connects a generator to an outside transformer.

The powerhouse was taken offline as a precaution.

Technical experts from the bureau's Denver office are investigating.
