Working to offset the restart and production increaseselsewhere was a cutback in output at DukeEnergy Corp.'s Brunswick 2 in North Carolina. An alert was declaredfollowing a fire in the service water building late July 12, which caused unit2 to drop from 100% to 70% power, according to a filing with the U.S. NuclearRegulatory Commission.
