Fire at Sydney's nuclear research center extinguished

A fire broke out in an electrical substation at a nuclear research center in Sydney, Australia, on Tuesday.

The blaze was promptly extinguished thanks to a fire warning system.

The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (ANSTO) confirmed that there were smoke and flames in a substation in a building where one of the two research reactors is located.

The reactor is safe but temporarily shut down, the ANSTO said.

An inquiry has been launched.
