TOKYO-  Associated Press Reports;

The operator of Japan’s stricken Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant says fire has broken out again at its No. 4 reactor unit because the initial blaze was not completly extinguished.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. says the new blaze flared early Wednesday in the outer housing of the reacors containment vessel.  Fire fighters are trying to put out the flames.

On Tuesday, a fire broke out in the reactor’s fuel storage pond- an area where used nuclear fuel is kept cool- causing radioactivity to be released into the atmosphere.

Officials are struggling to address the failure of safety systems at several of the plant’s reactors after Friday’s massive earthquake and tsunami.

I am 62 years old. I've been blogging for several years. I am into History and Politics as well as currant events. The latter being the main issues covered on these pages. I was a Community Advocate for twenty years, and a volunteer aide in a State Representatives Office in my home state of Michigan. While I have basically ceased these activities, I still watch the world around me closely and report on it as much as I can, which I might add is often. I encourage comments on my Blogs. I only ask that we keep our opinions clean and without insults threats or intimidation. I hope you take time to read The Horton Journal, and look forward to your comments.
