Firefighters found a fire inside a large turbine unit and one employee was evacuated from the plant. The two-alarm fire was placed under control about a half hour later, he said. 

One firefighter suffered an injury and ended up treated at Bayonne Medical Center and released later in the day.

The cause of the fire was determined to be accidental, Weaver said. 

The Bayonne Power Plant can be fueled by either natural gas or kerosene.
