More “good” news from the Ukraine

Forest fire rages near Chernobyl nuclear site, Yahoo:

A 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.

“The fire is at a distance of 15 to 20 kilometres (9 to 12 miles) from Chernobyl,” Maya Rudenko, a spokeswoman for the plant, told AFP by telephone, adding there was “no problem” there.

Interior Minister Arsen Avakov warned however that “the high flames and sudden gusts of wind mean there is a serious risk that the fire could spread.”

Expect revisions to the statement from Rudenko.
