Nuke transformer fire in California
I love collecting articles on transformer fires. Normally, they aren't a big deal because a huge dousing system activates and puts the fire out in 14 minutes. Since this plant is by the sea, the zillion gallons of contaminated fluid just drifts out to Japan! Speaking of potential transformer burnings, I am very happy that my sinking transformer on Pickering Unit 7 will never be fired up again, because they totally fried the reactor with that poisoning incident. I'm glad everybody is happy with the situation, because the 'Partying Media' never picked it up. Since OPG is trashing good reactors, they really need this new one at Darlington, and I'd be just peachy-keen to help them out!
