Forest fire rages near Chernobyl nuclear siteA forest fire broke out Tuesday near the Chernobyl plant in Ukraine, scene of the world’s worst civil nuclear disaster in 1986, but posed no danger to the site, officials said.
They say that now but lets see if they get it put out before it gets any closer. Its about 9 miles away from Chernobyl right now but fires can spread fast, which their interior minister has warned.
Those trees around the nuclear site probably still contain a lot of radiation. If they caught on fire that would be released into the atmosphere.
