BRIDGMAN (WKZO) -- A southwest Michigan nuclear power plant is out of service.

Officials at the Cook Nuclear Power Plant in Bridgman took the plant off-line just after 10 a.m. Sunday due to the failure of a steam-supply valve.  According to a press release, there is no safety risk to the plant or the public.

Indiana Michigan Power does not give specifics on when the plant will be back up and running, but the statement indicated such shutdowns are typically brief.
