Unit 4: Is There Intact Fuel Left Unburned?

Majia here: When I listened to Arnie Gundersen's recent interview and heard him make the following remark I wondered whether there was any truth in Tepco's assertion that there is nothing left to burn in fuel pool #4.  Here is the Enenews headline:

Enenews 9/27/2012: Gundersen v. Tepco: Watch audience uproar after official says “there’s nothing in the fuel pool to burn” (VIDEO)

I had suspected that this might be the case because we saw so much smoke coming from the general area of units 3 and 4 in the winter of 2011-2012. We saw few recent images of unit 4 until the late spring of 2012.

The images of unit 4 in the late spring of 2012 looked considerably different than earlier images of this building.

Below see an image of unit 4 from the spring of 2012. Below that find an image of unit 4 approximately 1 year earlier:
