EDF cuts capacity at Belleville plant after fire

PARIS, Nov 2 (Reuters) - EDF (EDF.PA) cut the production capacity of its reactor 2 at the Belleville plant in Central France to 60 percent after a fire broke out on Sunday in a non-nuclear part of the installation, the firm said on Monday.

“Smoke erruped at 1215 (1015 GMT) from the non-nuclear part of the plant,” EDF said on the plant’s information line.

“The fire was extinguished immediately,” EDF said. (Reporting by Muriel Boselli; Editing by Keiron Henderson)
