Fire Breaks Out at Fukushima Daiini But No Risks Reported

Fukushima Daiichi and Daiini are located approximately 6 kilometers apart. This week a fire was reported as breaking out at Fukushima Daiini:

FUKUSHIMA -- A minor fire set off an alarm in a building at the Fukushima No. 2 Nuclear Power Plant on Feb. 8, sparking an investigation.
At about 9 a.m. on Feb. 8, an alarm went off in a building handling the processing of waste from reactor Nos. 1 and 2 at the plant operated by Tokyo Electric Power Co. Holdings Inc. (TEPCO). A worker from a cooperating company noticed smoke coming from a room for cooling equipment and rushed to put out the fire, which was confirmed extinguished about 40 minutes later.
The story was covered exclusively by The Mainichi among English-language Japanese news services. No elevated radiation levels were reported.

Meanwhile, however, Fukushima Daiichi's units 2 and 3 continue to belch into the atmosphere and, no doubt, poison the ocean as very high radiation levels were reported outside of unit 2:

A remote-controlled inspection detected 42 Sieverts (Sv) per hour of radiation outside the foundations of the crippled Unit 2 of the plant.
But don't worry because only radiation from North Korea is dangerous:

Radiation from Japan is safe, especially when its in water that is planned on being dumped in the ocean:

Japan's nuclear waste stays contained and, unlike the contaminating radiation found in North Korea, does not bioaccumulate in sea life or agricultural products. Don't forget: Fukushima food is entirely safe and the elites love to eat it:
