Japan "fighting a fire we cannot see" at nuclear plant

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese engineers cannot say if a quake-damaged nuclear reactors in the northeast are under control, Hideohiko Nishiyama, deputy director general of the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, told reporters.

“With the water-spraying operations, we are fighting a fire we cannot see,” he said. “That fire is not spreading, but we cannot say yet that it is under control.”
