BREAKING: Fire at Fukushima Daiichi No. 4

Fire burning at No. 4 plant. Spent fuel has generated hydrogen gas at this plant (there is no new, fresh fuel at this plant presently) and this has led to a fire. Foreign objects have fallen into the open reactor vessel, it appears, and H2 generated by radiation has apparently burned and caused a fire.

Details are very unclear at the moment.

BREAKING 10:10 PM Monday 3/14
