Title: Fire crews called to Byron nuclear plant for rare, unusual event
Date: Jan 30, 2012
Fireman: We received a call out to the power plant… the original call… the way we received it was they had some smoke in the building out there… the building filling up with smoke… so obviously we dispatched out a full complement of vehicles there. [...]
As I was approaching the scene originally, it looked like a lot of smoke coming from the containment building, but in the end it was steam the power plant was manually releasing… they had some type of issue at the plant and had to release steam.
At 1:45 in
Fireman: On the way out [to the plant] we did not know it was steam when we arrived we were told that that’s what it was
