Knox said the damage the Unit 3 from the fire was not extensive.

"Really, just the aluminum covering on the steam pipes. It looks a lot worse in the pictures," he said. "We're surveying what to do to get back on line as quickly and safely as possible."

It was the first such fire at the Ivanpah plant, which opened about two years ago, Knox said.
