Jan. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Dominion Resources Inc. said a switchyard breaker failed at its Chesapeake Energy Center power plant in Virginia this morning.

Emergency responders are on the scene and no injuries were reported, Chet Wade, a company spokesman, said in a telephone interview today. Service was restored to all customers affected by the incident, Wade said.

All four units at the plant shut down automatically when the circuit breaker failed, said Jim Norvelle, a spokesman for Dominion.
