  • Small fire at Japan nuclear lab; no radiation leak

    A building housing an experimental nuclear reactor in Japan caught fire today, but there was no leak of radioactive materials, officials said, amid nervousness over Japan's atomic industry.

    The quasi-public Japan Atomic Energy Agency said sound insulation on the ceiling of a building housing a reactor in central Ibaraki prefecture caught fire around 9:30 am (local time).
