MOBILE, AL (WALA) -
It was a busy Saturday night for Mobile Firefighters after a line of strong storms moved through the area.
Mobile Fire-Rescue crews were dispatched to 168 emergency and non-emergency calls. One of those was a fire at BAE Systems along the Mobile River.
Around 8:30 p.m. Saturday, a generator at the shipyard caught on fire. When firefighters arrived, they determined they couldn't extinguish the fire until Alabama Power crews arrived to cut the electricity. Once that happened, the fire was put out. No injuries were reported.
Mobile Fire-Rescue said the cause of the fire has not been determined.
