The General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) has lost feed to a line connected to the Janzour Power Plant and another in the Krimiya district, due to the careless setting of a fire on Friday evening.

The destruction was as a result of unknown individuals setting fire to rubbish, which was piled up close to power lines near the building of Al-Nujailia, causing damage to five high voltage columns, which resulted in blackouts in parts of that area.

The GEOCL added that as soon as it had been informed of the situation, it immediately sent maintenance teams to rectify the damage done by this reckless act.
