Police have confirmed that the fire that broke out at a panel in the water purifying plant at Wakwella in Galle has been doused.

The residents also extended support to douse the fire.

Police said that the cause of the fire has not been determined and the extent of damage has not yet been assessed.

Our correspondent said that the power distribution system has been severely damaged due to an electrical short circuit that is believed to be the cause of the fire.

A spokeperson of the Water Supply and Drainage Board said that as a consequence, the water distribution at the Galle water purifying plant has been restricted.
