Firefighters are struggling to contain a wildfire in an area that is contaminated with radiation near the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant that melted down after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami off the coast of Japan (map).

The blaze, estimated at about 50 acres, started April 29 near the town of Namie. The video below shows helicopters dropping water on the fire.

  1. hey Herve. Love your posts. Good blog. Cannot see you Facebook posts. Used to be able too. Maybe you can post more explicit references on twitter. Facebook wreaks of censorship to me. Best wishes to you and your daughter. My friends and family in Japan not doing so well.
