Quick Summary AI Powered

TOKYO: A fire caused Japan's biggest power generator JERA to shut down a 500 megawatt (MW) unit at its Chiba thermal power station near Tokyo on Saturday (Jul 2), raising fears of an electricity crunch as a prolonged heatwave keeps demand at high levels.

The fire was extinguished about an hour later, it added.

Any further unexpected disruptions in power generation may prompt similar warnings again.
