RED WING, MN (AP) - One of the two units at the Prairie Island nuclear plant near Red Wing has been shut down for maintenance.
    
Operators safely shut down Unit 2 early Sunday to remove an obstruction in drain piping from a pump.
    
Xcel Energy Inc., which owns and operates Prairie Island, says the work is expected to be completed in a few days. The Minneapolis-based utility says there is no danger to the public or plant workers. Unit 1 continues to operate at full power.
