TOKYO, Japan (AP) -- The international nuclear agency says a fire at a tsunami-stricken Japanese power plant was at a storage pond for spent nuclear fuel.
The International Atomic Energy Agency says Japanese officials told it that the fire was in the storage pond -- a pool where used nuclear fuel is kept cool -- and that "radioactivity is being released directly into the atmosphere."
Japanese officials later said the fire, in Unit 4 of the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant, had been extinguished.
