Fire at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant put out

(Reuters) - A fire that broke out at Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has been put out, operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said on Tuesday.

Fire was seen earlier in the day at a building near the No.4 reactor. TEPCO said the fire has had no impact on radiation levels around the plant or on the plant's cooling systems.
