(KMOV) -- Ameren Missouri officials insist there is no danger after a fire shut down the Callaway Nuclear Power Plant. 

The fire occurred Friday in the turbine facility and not in the nuclear reactor according to the utility. 

The plant about 90 miles west of St Louis supplies power for about 20 percent of Ameren Missouri’s 1.2 million customers. 

Officials say there is no timetable for getting the plant back on line.
