Flames and sparks flew from the small power station on FM 3005, about a mile from the San Luis Pass toll bridge. The fire began about 9 p.m. No cause for the blaze was determined. Power to the area was shut off by HL&P workers about 9:30 p.m. Police officer Donald. Lounds said the sparks looked like fireworks. "At one time, it was so bright I had to cover my eyes," Lounds said. "It was just like an arc welder." Westbound traffic on FM 3005 was closed for about an hour. Correction The Golden Harvest Endowment Dinner sponsored by the Galveston chapter of the Texas Chefs' Association will be from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. today at the Moody Gardens Convention Center.
