quote: A fire at a Ukrainian nuclear power plant Wednesday led to the automatic shutdown of two reactors, but no radiation was released and the fire was extinguished, news reports said.
Ukraine's private One Plus One television and the ITAR-Tass news agency reported that the fire started when the boom of a crane fell on six electrical cables at the Rivne plant, at the site where the plant's No. 4 reactor is under construction.
The fire damaged two transformers and led to automatic safety systems shutting down reactors No. 2 and No. 3. Reactor No. 1 is under repairs.
No one was injured and there was no release of radiation, the reports said. Officials at the Emergencies Ministry and at the company that runs the power plants were not available.
