The department said it had dispatched a breathing apparatus team with two fire hoses to battle the blazes. The electricity supply on the island is reportedly stable.

In February this year, the power station was also hit by a fire that lasted for two hours.

HK Electric is one of two major power companies in the city, providing electricity to households on Hong Kong Island and Lamma Island.
