(Reuters) -UK power producer SSE said on Thursday there was no "incident" at its Atwick gas storage facility in northeast England, but that a "fire and gas trip" it reported earlier to the National Grid was prompted by a replacement of the fire and gas detection system.

SSE said the Atwick site, located near Hornsea on the East Yorkshire coast, was expected to be back online by 1800 GMT.
