Oct 27, 2008 (LBO) – A fire broke out in a key power station in Sri Lanka's capital Colombo soon after lights were doused on warnings of a Tamil Tiger guerilla air raid, officials said.
A lubrication oil cooler connected to the gas turbine plant GT7 in Kelanitissa was burning, officials of the state-run utility Ceylon Electricity Board said.
The fire department was already on site.
Anti-aircraft fire lit up the night sky soon after power was cut to the capital when Tamil Tiger guerilla aircraft were detected on the western coast of the island.
Military spokesman Udaya Nanayakkara said Tamil Tiger aircraft had dropped two bombs near the Mannar area police headquarters around 10.30 p.m in northeastern Sri Lanka in another raid.
Tamil Tigers had previously raided petroleum installations in the capital Colombo using low flying light aircraft.
