Fire Takes Another Belgian Nuclear Reactor Offline

Electrabel temporarily closed a nuclear reactor on Sunday after an electrical fire, Belgium's electricity transmission system operator said, leaving only three of the Belgian firm's seven nuclear plants in action. Electrabel, part of France's GDF Suez, had to halt the 1,000-megawatt Tihange 3, southwest of the city of Liege, after several electrical cables outside the reactor caught fire. Electrabel was not immediately available for comment. Belgian news agency Belga quoted a company spokesman as saying the cause of the fire was a technical fault.
