Fire At Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant Extinguished By Firefighters by Noblechykk(m): 9:28am On Mar 04, 2022
Firefighters successfully extinguished a massive fire at the six-reactor Zaporozhskaya Nuclear Power Plant in Energodar, southwestern Ukraine, local emergency services announced early on Friday.

“At 6:20 [local time], the fire in the training facility of Zaporozhskaya Nuclear Power Plant in Energodar was extinguished. There are no victims and casualties,” reported the State Emergency Service of Ukraine on their official Facebook page.

It was earlier reported that the massive fire had been localized in an area of 2,000 square meters.

The fire at Zaporozhskaya Nuclear Power Plant broke out Thursday night at the training facility situated next to the station.

It was originally reported by Energodar’s mayor that the fire had been caused by Russian shelling. It was also reported that the blaze had engulfed the power plant itself, but the emergency services dismissed these claims.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky issued a statement on Friday morning, expressing concern about the incident, which could become “a second Chernobyl or even worse.”

“We’ve contacted leaders, our partners. I talked to Charles Michel, Olaf Scholz, I talked to [Andrzej] Duda, talked to President Biden. We contacted IAEA’s Grossi, and also Prime Minister [Boris] Johnson. We are warning everyone,” he said in his video address.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said no “essential equipment” had been damaged at the plant, with no change in radiation levels reported.

Zaporozhskaya is one of the biggest nuclear plants in Europe. It was reported earlier this week that the facility had been captured by Russian forces, and that staff were continuing to work as normal, while monitoring radiation levels.

Last week, Moscow took control of the defunct Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant and released a short video of a Russian and a Ukrainian soldier in combat uniform watching surveillance cameras and motion detectors in the area.

Russia ordered its troops into Ukraine last week, describing the invasion as aimed at “demilitarizing” and “denazifying” the government in Kiev and stopping what it called the “genocide” in the two breakaway regions of Donetsk and Lugansk. Ukraine has accused Moscow of an unprovoked offensive, with the US and NATO allies following suit.

Despite the emergency situation and chaos of invasion, there is still coordination among essential services providers.

I have a dream that one day the fire service in Nigeria will not say they don’t have fuel for emergency situations, that even if they have fuel, they don’t go to the scene of the fire with empty reservoirs.

Power plants are built to shut itself down under certain conditions like fire, earthquakes, flood, etc. However, aside shutting down itself, the reactor needs it's cooling system working very well in other to continue core cooling and avoid Loss of Coolant Accident (LOCA).

Whatever it's happening, the nuclear power plant SHOULD be avoided.

Good to know the soldiers on both sides respect each other. The workers were not killed but allowed to continue their work. Y'all can see that Russia is really not after the civilians but there's no way their won't be casualties since their president ask them to carry weapons. They should sha dialogue on time to save the world of all these noise. We get our own wahala here too

Thank God a Nuclear disaster was averted.

Putin has shown the whole world he is a bloody tyrant. Only one person will be ruling a country of millions for decades like a demigod, silencing all opposing voices.
How can one single individual grow to be such powerful? Bloody tyrant!

Don't mind tinubu jare. He's a comedian. That's somebody who wants to be president. When a leader is lying, what do you expect of his followers, including his nairaland wolves ? grin

His wife died in 2018 at 74, now he's claiming 69? Do you know the age of his his first child? I always pity those shouting jagaban on nairaland. Somebody who's supposed to be a nonentity agbero, be collecting money under the oshodi bridge is being celebrated this way, what an insult! Illiteracy isn't only when you didn't go to school to earn western education. Illiteracy of the mind is worse .

I hope when another nation too targets Russia's nuclear facilities they won't turn around to cry like it is unheard of. It will be worse for them if their nuclear facilities are stored in few known locations.
