Fire at NYC Nuclear Reactor

Oil leaked into the Hudson River on Sunday after a transformer fire and explosion a day earlier at the Indian Point nuclear plant north of New York City, Reuters reported.
NYC governor Andrew Cuomo, who in the past has called for the plant to be shut down because of its proximity to densely populated New York City, said he was concerned about environmental damage. When the transformer exploded, it released oil into a holding tank, which then overflowed, sending oil onto the ground and into the river. Crews were working to contain and clean up the oil spill but it was not clear yet how much oil had been released.
The transformer explosion and fire at the nuclear power reactor 40 miles (65 km) north of New York City was quickly put out.
The fire triggered the closure of the plant's Unit 3 reactor, while the other Unit 2 reactor continued to operate.
