Fire at Fukusima nuke plant

A fire broke out at the crisis-hit Fukushima nuclear plant in northeastern Japan Tuesday morning, but was soon extinguished, the plant operator said.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said the fire occurred at the sampling building near a water outlet at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant’s No.4 reactor and was spotted by a worker.

There was no change in the levels of radiation around the reactor, the utility known as TEPCO added.

The nuclear plant was crippled after a mega quake and tsunami hit northeastern Japan on March 11.
