There never is any danger......is there?

Glad it was put out quickly.

even a full meltdown wasn't a danger to the public, reinstating dozens of reactors on earthquake fault lines are not a danger to the public, nor is any of the water contamination a danger to the public. There is simply no danger to the public in any way that makes the phrase danger to the public have any meaning

The Hamaoka plant will be the one with the highest risk when the expected Tokai earthquake occurs.

So how could this fire start if the place is shut down?

The same way that radioactive releases are continuing at Fukushima dai ichi.....

"No radiation danger to the public" you if believe that, there is a nice bridge in Brooklyn I have for sale. After almost 25 years in country I have ceased to believe and since the fukushima man-made disaster I really really don't believe.

Even my home fan has a safety thermal switch, in case it over heats and if it's an industrial fan, it should also have the same protection built into the motor windings. Does anyone know what company made this fan? The only way a fan catches fire theses days is if it was poorly built or if it was neglected for ages, allowing it to get clogged up with flamible material.

Yup. You can add the reactors themselves to that as welll.

I have absolutely no doubt hey are more upset about the possibility this will reflect badly on them than they are the actual fire, and cursing people that it was not kept quiet.

"no danger to public" should read "no danger to public this time" (cross your fingers)

A fire in an extractor fan and everyone starts running about as if the sky is falling... ¬.¬

Understandable perhaps, given the hysterical reaction to things like this.

Every nuclear accident and 'event' started with

no radiation danger to the public

Well if they cant handle maintenance of exhaust fans............... I wud worry about the nuclear bits me thinks!

I wonder how some people who don't trust anything Japanese companies or autorities say can continue to live in Japan. No doubts about the fact many things were kept hidden in Fukushima's case, but if you think you get only lies about every little thing, you should consider to leave for living in a "trustable country". Let me know which it is...it could be interesting.

Strange question, because people settled there long time ago and there is no reason why they should leave everything, instead the parties at fault, the authorities and companies, should change in an ideal world.

I call this an euphemism.

@Citizen2012: I think if you believe everything the autorities say is false and your own life, and specially your kids'life is in danger, this is a huge reason to leave, no matter how good your job or other things could be. We are speaking about expats who have a native place that is only waiting for them, where they can live without the obsession the government lies about everything. After Fukushima many foreigners left Japan. These people were more honest than all the ones who always complain but continue to remain in Japan. Maybe they remain because after all they don't think that everything is a lie how they write, and in this case their posts are useless and dishonest rants. But if they actually believe in what they write, that everything about radiation in Japan or any other problem is a huge lie, well they are irresponsable and negligent parents.

Problems and crisis are always profitable. Things running smoothly are not near as profitable. Fukushima will continue to be profitable to sub contractors as long as the problem is never solved. It will also be profitable to doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. It will remain profitable for rental properties is supposed safe areas and to real estate companies. And so it goes right up to government workers and politicians that will benefit from it all. It will be profitable for the Yakusa as well.

kurisupisu,

Location, location, location - "exhaust fan of the turbine building"

Note, not the "reactor building".
